Student dies after being restrained outside store

Doctors say 16-year-old suffered major brain damage

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County district attorney's office is reviewing the death of a high school student who stopped breathing after being restrained for allegedly trying to shoplift from a convenience store.

Police said customers restrained 16-year-old Corey Stingley outside VJ's Food Mart in West Allis on Dec. 14.

Police and paramedics revived him, and doctors at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa later determined that Stingley had suffered major brain damage, according to medical updates posted by Stingley's family.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Stingley died Saturday. He was a student at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis.

Acting West Allis Police Chief Charles Padgett said three customers were taken into custody for questioning and one of them was referred to the district attorney's office on suspicion of causing injury.
