Va. man with sword dies soon after TASER hit

The Virginian-Pilot

HAMPTON, Va. — A sword-wielding man died early Friday, hours after Hampton police twice used a TASER on him.

It was the first such reported death since officers there began carrying the devices in 2003, said Paula Scheck, a Hampton Police Department spokeswoman. No deaths have been reported in the three South Hampton Roads cities that widely outfit officers with TASERs.
