NEW YORK – A remorseful and distraught Lt. Michael Pigott fatally shot himself Thursday morning after the death of a man shot with a stun gun during a police call. Iman Morales was naked and on a building ledge jabbing police with an 8-foot-long fluorescent light bulb when Lt. Pigott ordered an officer to fire a stun gun which caused Morales to fall to his death. The suicide is another tragic turn in a case that is now raising questions about the use of Tasers by law enforcement agencies.
