Police say an erratically-acting man in Brooklyn died after being taken to the hospital by first responders.

According to authorities, at roughly 5:15 a.m. Friday morning, police responded to a 911 call of a man acting erratically in front of an apartment building on Schenectady Avenue in East Flatbush.

When they arrived, police found an unidentified man in his 40s, partially closed, yelling and hiding under parked cars.
