Day After 10 Dollar Million Wrongful Death Verdict Another Charlotte Man Dies After Taser By Cmpd

Just hours after a jury awarded $10 million to North Carolina wrongful death victim, Darryl Turner, another Charlotte man died after being tasered by police.

Lorenzo Williams, who an acquaintance described as having a prior criminal history that included assault on a female, among other charges, was pronounced dead shortly after being tasered by police while he was in the process of beating a woman.

Although the police use of the taser against Williams appeared to be justified, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department has suspended the use of Tasers for up to 45 days. According to witnesses, Williams and a female companion exited the Lynx line at the Woodlawn station and were arguing. Williams was seen choking and beating the woman. It was during the assault that a CMPD officer fired his Taser at Williams.

Police did not release information regarding where Williams was tasered, but did state that the event was likely captured on video camera and they would be analyzing those films.
