LOS ANGELES (AP) - An autopsy of a 19-year-old gunned down by Los Angeles police after a dangerous freeway pursuit reveals he was shot or grazed 15 times in the confrontation.
The report released Monday by LA county coroner's also showed there was no trace of drugs or alcohol in the blood of Abdul Arian when he died April 11.
Eight officers fired more than 90 rounds after Arian led police on a chase through the San Fernando Valley.
Police say Arian claimed in a 911 call to have a gun and threatened to shoot them. Arian was unarmed but video shot by news crews showed Arian in a shooting-type stance toward police just before gunfire erupted.
The young man's family filed a $120 million claim against the city in April.
