Corinth police get stun guns

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — Corinth police have received 10 stun guns to replace devices that fell into disrepair and were shelved.

The Daily Corinthian reports the devices, which police call electronic control devices, were issued following training sessions for city officers.

Capt. Chuck Hinds said the devices, manufactured by Karbon Arms, have a range of about 20 feet.

Much of the purchase price was covered by a grant from the state Department of Public Safety.
