Man in Oregon dies after police stun gun, prosecutors say

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who Oregon prosecutors say stopped breathing after officers used a stun gun on him has died. The Washington County District Attorney’s office said Friday that James Marshall died in the hospital two days after Forest Grove police stun gunned him on Oct. 7. Investigators have not yet released Marshall’s cause of death. Prosecutors say law enforcement had found Marshall waving a flagpole and causing a disturbance. Police say Marshall tried to grab an officer’s stun gun and accidentally discharged it into his arm. Prosecutors say an officer used the stun gun on Marshall’s back later. Four officers have been placed on leave as a result of the incident.
