la-2416523-me-1227-ezell-ford-presser-jlc-06-jpg-20141228The autopsy of Ezell Ford, killed by police in South Los Angeles this summer, shows he was shot three times — once in the right side, once in the right back and once in the right arm.

The release of the autopsy Monday marks the first time authorities have provided details about Ezell Ford’s wounds since his death.

The gunshot wound on his back showed the surrounding skin had a “muzzle imprint,” according to the autopsy, suggesting that shot was made at very close range. The autopsy said the back and side gunshot wounds were fatal.

The autopsy does not make any judgment about the conduct of the officers in the shooting or provide a detailed narrative of what occurred.

The coroner ruled Ford died of multiple gunshot wounds. The death was classified as a homicide, the standard coroner’s classification for the death of someone by the hand of another. Fatal police shootings, including those later determined to be justified, are routinely ruled as homicides.
