James Marshall loses his life after Stun Gun incident with the Forest Grove Cops


A man who Oregon prosecutors stated stopped breathing after officers utilized a stun gun on him has actually passed away.

James Marshall, 44, passed away in the medical center 2 days after Forest Grove cops stun gunned him on Oct. 7, the Washington County District Attorney’s office stated Friday. Detectives have actually not yet launched Marshall’s cause of death, the Oregonian reported.

Law enforcement found Marshall after midnight earlier this month waving a flagpole and causing a disruption, district attorneys stated. Police stated Marshall was verbally hostile and made aggressive movements with the 10-foot pole. Cops stated Marshall tried to break church windows and punched an officer in the face.

District attorneys said police brought Marshall to the ground and battled with him as they attempted to restrained him. Authorities stated Marshall attempted to get an officer’s stun gun and inadvertently released it into his arm. Later, an officer used the stun weapon on Marshall’s back, prosecutors said.

Four officers have been put on leave as a result of the incident, cops stated.

“Preliminary analysis of the body worn camera footage shows that the police officers violated no laws, did not act in an assaultive manner and did not do anything that would directly explain Mr. Kinney’s medical crisis,” the district attorney’s office said in a press release.
