Authorities Identify Man Who Died Following Disturbance

MODESTO - Authorities have identified a man who died after being detained with the use of a taser and sheriff K-9.

Rudy Santillan, aged 36 of Modesto, died Wednesday morning in a hospital. Authorities say Tuesday evening at about 6:44pm, deputies were called to the 1000 block of Imperial Avenue for an altercation between a man and his adult son.

Early reports indicated Santillan was "going crazy" and "breaking everything" and witnesses who called 911 said that there were 30 gang members and someone armed with a gun at the location.

Deputies arrived and made contact with Santillan, who appeared to be in an altered state, in a nearby vacant lot. Officials say he resisted when deputies attempted to take him into custody using physical restraint, tasers and a K-9. During the struggle, deputies asked for an ambulance to stand by in the area.

After Santillan was detained, deputies noticed he was unconscious and suffering from a medical emergency.

Deputies began performing life saving measures on Santillan until medics arrived to transport him by ambulance to a hospital. He died early the next morning at Doctors Medical Center.

Stanislaus Sheriff Internal Affairs, Districy Attorneys and the Crimes Against Persons division is investigating the incident. Authorities are tentatively planning to release body worn camera video pending the investigation.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Detective Fisher at (209) 525-7083.
