A Peru Officer who shocked an Alzheimer's patient with a stun gun has lost his job.
City officials fired Officer Gregory Martin Friday.
Officer Martin used his stun gun to shock James Howard five times during a June 17 incident.
Police were originally called to the Merry Manor Nursing home after Howard became "combative" and "struck several employees."
Howard's wife, Virginia, said police were told her husband has advanced stage Alzheimer's and cannot interpret or follow orders but Martin still shocked James.
Virginia Howard has filed a lawsuit against the city of Peru and its police department.
