CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The family of Everette Howard held three protests on Monday morning.

Howard was tased by UC Police during a reported fight in August of last year. Howard appeared to go into cardiac arrest shortly after the tasing and was taken to University Hospital where he died.

His family says they frustrated with the coroner's ruling that the cause and manner of the teen's death is unknown. They are also frustrated with Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, saying he was too quick to close the case.

The protests were held at the Hamilton County Coroner's Office, the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office and the UC Police Station on Monday, June 18.
