INDIAN LAKE, N.Y. -

An autopsy is planned for a man who created a violent disturbance in a northern New York church and then died after being restrained by witnesses.

It happened Saturday afternoon at St. Mary's Church in Indian Lake. Police say 44-year-old Jason Berg entered during a service, shouted obscenities and threw objects at parishioners.

Members of the church restrained Berg, who resisted and then became unresponsive. Rescue crews were unable to revive him.

Police say Berg was armed with a loaded pistol and had extra ammunition.
