Investigation Underway Into Woman's Death While Being Arrested

Hillsborough County deputies are looking into a woman's death in Brandon.

Law enforcement was called out to an apartment just after 11 p.m. on Tuesday for a report of assault.

Those inside the apartment say 24-year-old Kaynesha Rhodes used to live there and came over with a gun and held them hostage inside.

She is said to have hit one of the victims in the head with a baseball bat and bit of a chunk off a child's finger.

While Rhodes was handcuffed, she became unresponsive.

She was rushed to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Officials are awaiting a toxicology report and the medical examiner is working to determine if previous medical conditions were a factor in her death.
