An autopsy of Ahmaud Arbery conducted the day after his death has revealed he died from three shotgun wounds, two of them to the chest.
Coroner Edmund Donoghue noted the cause of death was “multiple shotgun wounds” and classified Arbery’s death as “homicide,” TMZ reported citing the autopsy report.
Two close-range shotgun blasts to the chest that planted two separate groups of shotgun pellets are what killed the 25-year-old jogger, the report said. Arbery also had a graze wound on his right wrist.
The autopsy, conducted on Feb. 24, the day after Arbery was killed, confirms that all three shots hit him.
The report also said there were no drugs or alcohol in his system, TMZ said.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigations’ report, dated April 1, includes a description of what Ahmaud had on during the fatal shooting. He was wearing a white t-shirt, tan cargo shorts, gray athletic shoes, and two tan bandanas … all of which were bloodstained.
Arbery’s final moment was captured in a graphic video, which prompted a national outcry from people who called for the suspects to be arrested and charged.
Last Thursday, Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, were arrested and charged with murder in connection with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery.
