Police in Michigan say a 15-year-old boy has died after being Tasered by officers who were trying to break up a fight.

Police didn’t release his name and say state police are investigating.

A Bay City police news release says officers answered a report of an early morning fight on Sunday. The statement says two males were arguing in an apartment, and one of them “attempted to fight the officers.”


Police say officers Tasered him, and his reaction led them to immediately call for emergency medical help. He was pronounced dead at Bay Regional Medical Center.

An Amnesty Internationalreport claims that more than 300 people have been killed after being Tasered since 2001 in the US.

Deputy Chief Thomas Pletzke tells WNEM-TV police placed one officer on administrative leave.
