Four white North Carolina officers have been put on administrative duty after a black man died in a local police department. Prior to being handcuffed, the man was subdued with pepper spray. Winston-Salem Police Department officers responded to a discharging firearm call at the Family Dollar store on Old Rural Hall Road around 7:30pm Wednesday evening, when the incident began, according to law enforcement. A brief struggle occurred as police attempted to detain 31-year-old Travis Nevelle Page, triggering one of the officers to use department-issued pepper spray. A witness, Tameka McLean, told that she managed to record a video on her cell phone, which shows police and Page on the ground. The Winston-Salem PD’s officers – Corporal Robert Fenimore, Christopher Doub, Austin Conrad and Officer Jacob Tuttle – performed CPR and immediately requested emergency medical services. Page was taken to Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
