Fatal TASER incident sparks debate in Colo.

DENVER, Colo. — The death of a well-liked real estate agent who was zapped with a police Taser on Monday promises to renew a growing debate about the use of the less-lethal weapon.

Albert Augustine Romero died after he was shot with a stun gun. Officers were responding to a report from one of Romero's neighbors who said the 47-year-old Denver man was walking in the 6100 block of West Yale Avenue at 3 a.m., smashing lights and behaving erratically.

When officers arrived, police say, Romero charged them, prompting a patrolman to fire his Taser. The shot sent a surge of electricity into Romero's body, sending him to the ground, according to Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.
