A vigil was held Sunday night and his mother talked about what happened.

Warren police say Mitchell was driving a car with expired tags.

As officers pulled him over, they say he ran and then tried to hide inside a house near 8 Mile and Schoenherr.

At some point, there was a struggle and an officer used the taser.

Relatives say Mitchell was no more than 110 pounds and posed no threat to law enforcement.

But a spokesperson for the Warren Police Department told Action News officers were following their Taser guidelines. 

Still, a routine internal investigation is underway and the Macomb County prosecutor’s office is involved.

An autopsy is being conducting on Mitchell’s body.

It should be completed soon.

    If they were indeed following their “guidelines”, then the goddamn guidelines need to be changed immediately before there are any more senseless deaths like this one!!!
