A person running from the police collapsed and died Friday, Birmingham police said. The incident happened at the Southtown public housing community. Plainclothes officers were trying to question someone, a police spokesman said. The person, a heavyset man known as "Dough Boy," took off running, but fell to the ground. He was taken to UAB Hospital, and pronounced dead. The Alabama Bureau of Investigation was called in to review the incident, since it involved police.
