Charlie Riedel, Associated Press
Unarmed teenager Michael Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, according to a private autopsy.
The New York Times reported that the preliminary autopsy, performed Sunday, showed one of the bullets entered the top of Brown’s skull and suggested the 18-year-old’s head was bent forward when he was hit, based on an account by Dr. Michael Baden, former New York City chief medical examiner.
Baden was in Missouri at the Brown family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy.
The autopsy determined that Brown also was shot four times in the right arm, the Times reported. All bullets were fired into his front.
According to the Times account, the bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range. No gunpowder was present on Brown’s body.
