LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – A man died after Metro Louisville police used an electrical stun device on him to break up a fight.

A police spokeswoman told the Courier-Journal the man went into what she described as a “medical emergency” after a police officer shocked him with the stun gun late Wednesday night.

Police performed CPR on him until an ambulance arrived, but the man was pronounced dead at a hospital. Police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said the man and his brother were fighting and the first officer on the scene called for backup.

The man, his brother and the two officers were not immediately identified. In September 2006, Louisville police shocked another man with a stun gun and he also died.

A coroner’s report concluded that man died of a condition known as excited delirium.
