Michael Brown's official autopsy indicates he was shot in the hand at close range, but a medical examiner not involved in the investigation says there's no way to conclude whether the injury meant the unarmed 18-year-old was trying to grab the gun of the officer who killed him. The St. Louis County medical examiner's autopsy report, obtained by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, doesn't explain why Brown was killed after the apparent scuffle at the officer's police vehicle spilled onto a Ferguson street or confirm whether he was confronting Officer Darren Wilson or trying to surrender when he was fatally shot - both scenarios offered by various witnesses to the Aug. 9 shooting.

An analysis by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of the St. Louis County medical examiner's official autopsy on Michael Brown shows the black 18-year-old man was shot in the hand at close range and had marijuana in his system. One of the findings from the autopsy was the trajectory of shots fired by officer Darren Wilson at Brown, particularity the sixth shot "It traveled from the back of Michael Brown's arm to the inner arm which means that his palms could not have been facing Wilson as some witnesses have said," Christine Byers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch told Here Now' s Robin Young.
