NEW YORK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Some New Yorkers, enraged by a man's death in police custody, say officers involved should face criminal charges -- after a medical examiner's ruling blamed a prohibited chokehold.

The city's medical examiner said Eric Garner was killed by neck compressions from the chokehold. Video of the scene was recorded by one of his friends.

Asthma, heart disease and obesity were listed as contributing factors in the 43-year-old Garner's death in July.

Garner's arrest and pleas of "I can't breathe" sparked outrage and led to the overhaul of the NYPD's use of force training.
