CINCINNATI - North College Hill Police Chief Gary Foust said Monday he has no plans to change the department's policy regarding the use of Taser guns.

He made the statement after a 35-year-old Forest Park resident died after a Taser gun was used on him by one of Foust's officers.

On June 26, Springfield Township police responded to a 911 call of a fight and shots fired at Crutchfield Park.

North College Hill responded as backup.

Sometime during the incident, a North College Hill police officer, whose name has not been released, fired his Taser weapon at Corey McGinnis.

Family members say McGinnis was playing basketball with his two teenaged sons.

The family says they will fight to see Taser policies changed to prevent further deaths.

Foust says Springfield Township police are handling the criminal investigation, and he will have no further comment except to say he believes his officer acting reasonably and within department protocols.
