An 81-year-old man who scared a Southern California neighborhood for a long time with a slingshot has died shortly after he was arrested, officials said.

A man was found dead in a house in Azusa, near Los Angeles, on Wednesday night, said a police sergeant. Nick Covarrubias spoke.

“We didn’t see any signs of cheating or wrongdoing,” Covarrubias told the Southern California News Group.

The man passed away from a heart disease called arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease, as determined by the medical examiner’s office. They considered his death to be from natural causes.

The man was let go on Tuesday without having to pay bail after saying he didn’t do a crime of breaking things. He said not guilty to five serious crimes of breaking things and two smaller crimes.

The police arrested a man on May 23 because they suspected him of breaking windows and car windshields with a slingshot and narrowly missing people with ball bearings. No one got hurt.

During their investigation, detectives found out that for nine to ten years, many people were being hurt by someone who was shooting a slingshot. This was announced by the Azusa Police Department last week.

Police found a slingshot and small metal balls at the man’s house in Azusa while searching with a warrant.

On Saturday, Azusa police Lt Jake Bushey said that detectives found out that the suspect shot most of the ball bearings from his backyard.

“We don’t know why they did it, just to cause trouble,” Bushey told the news group.

The police thought he broke windows in his neighborhood for 10 years. The LA County District Attorney’s Office is accusing him of breaking windows from October 2021 to May 2024.
