University of Cincinnati Police Taser Results in Death of Freshman Student

Everette Howard, 18, died early Saturday morning apparently from a University of Cincinnati Campus Police's taser gun. Some eyewitnesses report Howard was trying to break up a fight when campus police responded. The police are saying that Howard 'appeared' angry and didn't 'follow orders'. Witnesses said Howard collapsed after a campus police officer stunned him with a taser. That officer is currently on paid administrative leave while the investigation is on-going. An autopsy is expected  to be performed today. Howard was an honor, on scholarship at the university, and was taking summer courses to get ahead in his academic career. Our prayers are with the family.
