Camden County authorities are looking into a death of a man shortly after he was taken into police custody.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says that 47-year-old Rodney Terry of Williamstown was arrested at 6:30 p.m. Thursday after police in Lawnside saw him throwing rocks at a home and yelling.

Authorities say he was handcuffed and put in the back of a police cruiser and that officers called an ambulance because of his behavior.

They say that when emergency medical conditions arrived, he had stopped breathing.

The cause of death has not been determined.
