Law enforcement was not responsible for a man who died in custody after a Chatham County deputy used a Taser stun gun to subdue him, the Randolph County District Attorney's Office said in a news release Monday.

On July 23, according to the report, Shannon Lane Johnson led deputies on a high-speed chase across Chatham County, starting in Pittsboro and ending in Randolph County near Asheboro.
