3 Kansas Sheriff Deputies Cleared in Man's Stun Gun Death

WAKARUSA, Kan. (AP) — Investigators have cleared three Kansas sheriff's deputies in connection with the 2015 death of a man who collapsed after the deputies shocked him with stun guns during a domestic dispute. Osage County Attorney Brandon Jones released on Wednesday the findings of the probe by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Osage County Sheriff's Office in the death of 47-year-old Kenneth Schick. Authorities have said deputies who responded to a reported domestic dispute in October of last year used stun guns and pepper spray to gain control of Schick. Schick later died at a Topeka hospital. Wednesday's report says the investigation of the confrontation found no credible evidence the deputies used unreasonable force on Schick. The report also says Schick placed two deputies in potentially life-threatening situations.
