Rodriguez stopped breathing while officers were restraining him, Lewis said. An ambulance was already at the theater for an unrelated incident, but paramedics were unable to revive him, he said.

Luinahi Rodriguez said her mother recorded the altercation on her cellphone, and police confiscated it.

Lewis confirmed that police took the cellphone as evidence, but he didn't know whether detectives have viewed the video yet.

Luis Rodriguez's body was taken to the state medical examiner for an official autopsy to determine cause of death.
