Last updated: 7 months ago
A 32-year-old man who Baton Rouge police said was about to attack an officer was shot twice with Taser guns Saturday morning and died later that day at a hospital “from unknown reasons,” police said. Kevin Bajoie, of Zachary, was involved in a fight on Avenue C in Scotlandville, where responding officers used the stun guns to subdue him, Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge police spokesman, said Sunday. Officers responding to a report of people fighting at 9908 Avenue C about 11:30 a.m. Saturday found Bajoie lying on his back in the yard, Coppola said. Police believe Bajoie was involved in the fight, he said.

In June 2016 , Bajoie's parents, Lawrence and Mabel Bajoie, filed suit in Judicial District Court for the Parish of East Baton Rouge against the Baton Rouge Police Department, and police officers Robert Gann, Donald Stoetzner, Jace Ducote and Maurice Duke. The lawsuit sought a jury trial and monetary award.
