The suspect later died after a hospital guard subdued him with a Taser, authorities said. Aitkin County Sheriff’s Investigator Steven Sandberg, 60, had been guarding Danny Leroy Hammond, 50, who was being investigated in connection with a domestic incident, authorities said. Hammond got out of his hospital bed and took the officer’s firearm during a struggle, Drew Evans, superintendent of the state’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, said at a news conference.
