Dr. Baden: Brown could have survived all shots, except the one to the head

(KTVI)- The results of a private autopsy on the body of Michael Brown were explained Monday by the doctors who did the autopsy.

Michael Brown was reportedly shot six times, according to Dr. Michael Baden.  He says Brown could have survived all the shots, expect the one to the head.  The doctor and his colleague point out that the shot to the head was more than likely the last shot.

In a news conference, Dr. Baden says Brown was shot four times in the arm. He was also shot twice in the head. The private autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Baden, former Chief Medical Examiner for New York City.  Dr. Baden says all of the gunshots appeared to have been fired into Brown’s front. He didn’t find any gunpowder residue on his body. This suggests the shots were fired from a distance. The unarmed 18-year-old was shot to death August 9th by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

It is unclear exactly what led to the shooting that has created outrage in the community. The Department of Justice is now investigating.

Dr. Baden was flown in for the autopsy at the request of Micheal Brown`s family. He did not have access to Brown`s clothing which could lead to more findings.
