MINNEAPOLIS — The death of a 24-year-old Minneapolis man last December after he fought with police and was shot with a Taser has been ruled a homicide caused by cardiorespiratory arrest, according to the Hennepin County medical examiner.

Quincy DeShawn Smith, a former radio DJ, died around 12:45 a.m. Dec. 9 after a confrontation with officers who had been called to the 1000 block of Knox Avenue N. on a report of a domestic assault involving a man with a gun. He struggled with officers as they tried to arrest him and was Tasered.
