State investigators are looking into the death of a 95-year-old suburban man after an armed confrontation with police.

Police in far south suburban Park Forest say they were called Friday night by a private ambulance service transporting what they described as a combative patient.

Police say they used a stun gun and bean bag rounds to subdue the man after he'd threatened them first with a cane and then a knife.

Police also say he was conscious after the incident, but later died at the hospital. An autopsy is pending.
