Inquest Called Into Death of 17-year-old Michael Langan

CJOB News Team reporting

An inquest has been called into the death of a 17-year old boy in the summer of 2008, who died after Winnipeg police used an electronic control device. A release from the Chief Medical Examiner says Michael Brian Langan had been attempting to break into vehicles when the police were called. Officers found him at Arlington and William.... apparently armed with a knife. The immediate cause of death was linked to the use of the taser. However it was also determined a rare heart condition, and a police foot chase contributed to the death.
