Ex­am­iner ver­i­fies de­tails of shoot­ing

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION & WORLD -

A black man whose death at the hands of po­lice spurred two nights of vi­o­lence in Mil­wau­kee was shot once in the chest and once in the arm, the Mil­wau­kee County med­i­cal ex­am­iner said Fri­day.

Sylville K. Smith, 23, died Aug. 13. Po­lice say body-cam­era video from the of­fi­cer who shot Smith shows he was hold­ing a gun and had turned to­ward the of­fi­cer, who is also black.

Aside from con­firm­ing that ac­count, a brief re­lease from the med­i­cal ex­am­iner said lit­tle. It said an au­topsy re­port and in­ves­tiga­tive re­ports would not be re­leased since Smith’s death is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the state.
