Global Grind

The death of Lashano Gilbert, a 31-year-old man who died back in October after being zapped twice with a police stun gun, has been ruled a homicide. Officials still say, however, that, that doesn’t mean the officers actually committed a crime.

ABC News reports:

The Day newspaper reports the chief medical examiner’s office ruled recently the October death of 31-year-old Lashano Gilbert was a homicide caused by a fight with police that led to complications with what appeared to be a sickle cell disease condition.

Authorities say Gilbert was arrested for an alleged carjacking incident, passing away within 8 hours following the physical altercation with officers. The case is still being investigated. The ruling means his death was at least in part caused by someone else.

We will keep you informed on the latest.
