Canberra man died on Tuesday after police tasered him in the suburb of Waramanga.

Officers were called to Larakia Street about 11.30am after they received a report of a man yelling and smashing glass.

In a statement released late on Tuesday, police said they believed the man had seriously hurt himself so used a taser to prevent him from further harming himself.

Officers and paramedics then attended to the man but he was unable to be revived.

It is believed to be the first time a person has died after being tasered in the ACT.

 Shocked neighbours described the man as a “normal bloke” who would sometimes drink heavily.

He was a friendly man and kept to himself but would come over to offer a hand if he saw them working out the front, they said.
