Lawyer: Private autopsy confirms witness accounts that unarmed Missouri teen repeatedly shot

The attorney for the family of an unarmed black teenager fatally shot by police says a private autopsy confirms witness accounts that he was shot multiple times.

Lawyer Benjamin Crump said Monday that the independent autopsy shows 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot at least six times. But he stressed that the report was preliminary.

Brown was fatally shot by a police officer Aug. 9 in Ferguson, touching off a week of rancorous protests in the St. Louis suburb.

The autopsy was conducted by former New York City chief medical examiner Dr. Michael Baden. He found that one of the bullets entered the top of Brown's skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when he suffered the fatal injury.

Baden has testified in several high-profile cases, including the O.J. Simpson trial.
