Student Dies After Campus Officer Uses TASER

August 08, 2011  | 

The University of Cincinnati is investigating its police department after an 18-year-old died following an incident on campus involving police use of a TASER.

Campus officers investigating a reported assault on Aug. 6 were confronted by Everette Howard, who had reportedly balled his fists and refused to back off. An officer then shot him once with a TASER.

Howard was taken to Christ Hospital, where he died. The medical examiner is still investigating the cause of death.

"This is a very rare situation and we're looking into it deeply," Hamilton County Coroner Amant Bhati told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The incident occurred outside a dormitory where Howard was staying during a six-week college prep program. He was set to enroll at the University of the Cumberlands in the fall.
