    PHOENIX - New witness video shows Phoenix police pinning down a 28-year-old man on a scorching summer street just minutes before he became unresponsive and died.

    The witness video, from the moving car, showed one officer holding Ramon's feet to the ground.

    Ramon appeared to be holding his head off the pavement, but he was not moving otherwise.

    Police say they put Ramon in the back of a police car before he became unresponsive.

    Phoenix police tell ABC15 they will release their bodycam video of the arrest and in-custody death next week.
