Adam Trammell was a mentally ill Milwaukee man who was tased 15 times in the shower of his apartment by West Milwaukee officers. He died shortly after. Trammell was 22 years old.

Now, the village of West Milwaukee is settling with Trammell’s family for $2.5 million in exchange for the dismissal of Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit. Body camera video of the incident show officers mistakenly calling Trammell by the wrong name.

Family Attorney Robin Shellow cites the conduct of the police officers as unlawful and extreme.
