Investigators say Jerome Gill was the focus of a drug sting in Melrose Park Thursday afternoon.

They claim Gill tried to run from police after they arrested him for selling drugs.

Officers used a Taser on Gill when he reportedly resisted arrest.

He died an hour later.

Police say they recovered drugs which gill had tried to swallow.

Gill's family disputes that claim.

They insist he was innocent and that police beat him.
