A teenage boy went into cardiac arrest outside the Kum & Go store at Shawnee and Country Club streets yesterday, according to emergency officials.
He was transported via EMS to Muskogee’s Saint Francis Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Officials are not releasing his name, but eyewitnesses say he was 16 years old. EMS officials say it was “a medical problem that turned into cardiac arrest.”
Police do not suspect foul play, but are waiting on the medical examiner’s report for a final determination and cause.
