ST. LOUIS — Two experts say Michael Brown’s official autopsy shows the 18-year-old was shot in the hand at close range the day he was killed by a Ferguson police officer.
The newspaper reports that St. Louis medical examiner Dr. Michael Graham and another pathologist not involved in the investigation reviewed the report and said it indicates a wound to Brown’s hand came at close range.
The report says Brown and officer Darren Wilson struggled inside Wilson’s SUV Aug. 9 and Brown was shot once in the hand. Brown was killed outside the vehicle.
Brown family attorney Benjamin Crump says the autopsy offers no insight into why Wilson killed Brown.
