Los Angeles police have released the autopsy of Ezell Ford, a 25-year-old, unarmed black man shot and killed by officers in August.
The autopsy reveals Ford was shot three times: in his back, his right side and his right arm. The report also tells us the wound in his back had a muzzle imprint, which means the shot was fired at close range. (Video via KTLA)
Ford was shot after being stopped by two LAPD officers. Police say Ford struggled with the officers and went for one of their guns. Police have yet to say why Ford was initially stopped by the officers.
