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.
