Student dies after being restrained outside store


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Investigators are looking into the death of a high school student who was restrained for allegedly trying to shoplift.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's office is reviewing the case. Police say customers restrained Corey Stingley, 16, outside VJ's Food Mart in West Allis on December 14. He stopped breathing.

Police and paramedics were able to revive Stingley, but doctors at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa later determined he suffered major brain damage, according to medical updates posted by Stingley's family.

Stingley died Saturday. He was a student at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis.

Acting West Allis Police Chief Charles Padgett says three customers were taken into custody for questioning and one of them was referred to the district attorney's office on suspicion of causing injury.
