Shotgun-yielding man dies unexpectedly after being detained

A 49-year old man unexpectedly died Wednesday after he was taken into custody for allegedly firing a shotgun along the Schriever Overpass, Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies said.

Cops in Terrebonne Parish responded to multiple calls in reference to an armed male, later identified as Troy Brady of 127 St. George Road, Schriever, walking in the roadway with a gun firing several rounds into the air.

Police say when they arrived on the scene they found Brady sitting in the middle of West Main Street with a shotgun near him.

Officers say Brady was immediately detained.

As deputies investigated, officials say he became unresponsive. Brady was transported to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center by EMS. He was pronounced dead shortly after.

A cause of death has not been determined. Officials are awaiting results of an autopsy.
