Autopsy: Michael Brown Was Shot 6 Times

(NEWSER) – The results of a private autopsy on Michael Brown may escalate tensions in Ferguson, Missouri, even further: The examiner says the unarmed teenager was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, and all the bullets came from the front, reports the New York Times.

Pathologist Michael Baden, New York City's former chief medical examiner, says all the bullets were fired from at least one or two feet away, and one bullet—apparently the last one fired—hit the top of the 18-year-old's head.

"To have a shot that’s at a 90-degree angle from the top of his skull to the bottom of his chin, almost vertical, that sounds like an officer standing over him," a lawyer for the Brown family tells the Los Angeles Times, though Baden stresses he had no access to witness statements and more information will be needed to determine the facts of the shooting.
