UC Student Killed With Taser

A University of Cincinnati summer school student died Saturday (August 6) after he was tased by campus police.

A police report states that officers arrived to Everrett Howard’s dorm around 3a.m and were approached by Howard, who seemed agitated and had his fists balled.

After refusing police orders to stand down, an officer shot him once with a taser.

As a result of the shot Howard had a heart attack and was pronounced dead shortly after at a nearby hospital.

The university has an ongoing investigation into the incident.

The officer who fired the fatal shot is on paid leave according to reports.
