BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Three weeks after the death of a man in police custody, city officials say there is still no cause of death.

According to WJZ’s media partner, The Baltimore Sun, the medical examiner is still trying to determine how Tyrone West died.

Police say West, 44, was pulled over July 18 for a traffic stop. He resisted arrest and ended up fighting with officers. That’s when he went into medical distress.

Witnesses say he was hit several times by officers even after he stopped moving.

The medical examiner says since West was young and in good health, they need to explore all avenues before releasing a cause of death.

West’s family is pushing for answers and waiting for the results before taking their next step.

The officers have since been cleared of any wrongdoing.
