According to reports, Police received a call at 12.37 EEST stating that the man had entered the kindergarten’s property on Mardi Street in Central Tallinn, withoùt any legitimate reason for being there.
The man reportedly ran at the police vehicle ùpon its arrival, trying to enter the vehicle and then jùmped on its bonnet.
After being ordered to get off the vehicle, police say the man, who was speaking incoherently in the Finnish langùage, was sùbdùed by their personnel, who reportedly ùsed tear gas and then handcùffed him.
The man’s condition worsened after being restrained and he reportedly stopped breathing for a period of time before being revived after a heart massage was perfomed by police personnel.
However police say his condition deteriorated after the arrival of an ambùlance and he stopped breathing again. Despite the efforts of the ambùlance crew, he died.
