The family of a teen who died while in the custody of Durham police have set up a memorial fund to help with expenses related to the death.

Huerta, a student at Riverside High School, was in the custody of Officer Samuel Duncan when he died Tuesday.

Lopez said Duncan was transporting Huerta to police headquarters to pick up a warrant charging the teen with second-degree trespassing. When Duncan arrived at police headquarters, he heard a loud noise in the car and Duncan jumped from the vehicle.

The patrol car then rolled and crashed into a van in the parking lot. Lopez said that it did not appear that any officer fired a weapon during the incident.

The cause of death has not been released.
