MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Daniel Mingo filed a lawsuit against the city of Mobile and the Mobile Police Department, claiming police beat him after he ran away from officers on Jan. 21.
The Press-Register reports Saturday that Mingo died Thursday.
The lawsuit also claims that officers knew Mingo had mental
disabilities and was a patient at local mental health facility.
The city has said police acted appropriately and were waiting
the results of an autopsy.
