Update: Olathe police on Monday identified the man as Marcelo R. Carvalho of Olathe.
A 34-year-old man died after experiencing a medical emergency during a struggle with Olathe police who had responded to a report of an armed disturbance Saturday.
Officers went to the 14500 block of West 138th Place about 4 a.m. and encountered the man, who police said was agitated and threatened the officers with a blunt object.
