GIBRALTAR, Mich. (AP) - No charges are planned following the April death of a Detroit-area man who was shocked with a police stun gun.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said it has cleared two officers involved in the death of 39-year-old David Kapuscinski of Gibraltar.

Kapuscinski was shocked after police responded to a call from a child about a domestic assault at a Gibraltar apartment building. Authorities say Kapuscinski refused officer’s orders to move away from his girlfriend and became “combative” when officers tried to arrest him.

Prosecutors say the man was shocked three times and collapsed. He received emergency medical treatment but eventually died.

Police had said the use of force was justified. Prosecutor Kym Worthy says in a statement that “officers acted just as officers should act” in those circumstances.
