The 95 year-old assisted living facility resident who died after an armed confrontation with police died of blunt force trauma to the abdomen, according to an autopsy.

John Warna was hit by a stun gun and beanbag rounds after Park Forest police say he threatened them with a cane and then a knife at the Victory Centre of Park Forest apartments Friday night.

Police were called because of Warna's allegedly combative behavior.

State investigators are reviewing the case.
