Police identify Man Who Died After Having Health Troubles at Omaha Shelter

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police have identified a man who died
after having a medical emergency at a homeless shelter.
Police say the man was 54-year-old Marshall Nelson of Omaha.
Medics were called to the shelter in northeast Omaha early
Friday morning to help a man who was described as combative.
Nelson was restrained until police officers arrived to put him
in handcuffs so he could be taken to a hospital.
Police say the medics and officers then noticed Nelson seemed to
have become unconscious, so the handcuffs were removed and CPR was
begun.
He was taken to Creighton University Medical Center, where he
was pronounced dead.
Police say no physical force was used on Nelson.
A homicide unit is investigating.
