Officials reviewing possible criminal charges against West Milwaukee police officers

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Officials say prosecutors are reviewing possible criminal charges against three suburban Milwaukee police officers who used a stun gun on a mentally ill man who later died.

A medical examiner's report says use of the Taser shocks was a significant condition leading to the death of 22-year-old Adam Trammel in West Milwaukee last May.

A neighbor had called police saying Trammel was running around naked and acting strangely. Family members say Trammell was schizophrenic.
