Family says U-M doctor hit teenage gunshot wound victim
A doctor at the University of Michigan's University Hospital is accused of grabbing the arms of a teenage gunshot wound victim and hitting him while the teen was being treated there, according to a WDIV report.
Lukequan Williams, 19, could not move from the neck down following a gunshot and was being treated at the hospital Wednesday afternoon when he was assaulted, his parents told Click on Detroit. Williams was on speaker phone with his parents to complain about his treatment at the hospital when he began arguing with doctors and the line went dead before he was assaulted, the report said.
The station reported that the university released this statement Thursday: "We are cooperating fully with the UM Department of Public Safety in its investigation of this incident, and doing an internal review of our own. We have removed the physician in question from duty while these investigations continue."
