Six times. That’s the number of times Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson last Saturday afternoon which sparked mass protests, riots and a nationwide look into racism, police militarization and the town Ferguson, Missouri.

The Michael Brown autopsy was revealed Sunday night by the New York Times which showed four bullets entered the teen’s body from the front of his arm and two in his head, one of which according to the autopsy, “shattered Mr. Brown’s right eye, traveled through his face, exited his jaw and re-entered his collarbone.”

By showing that none of the bullets entered Brown from his back, it removes the theory that he was running from police when he was fatally shot. Most importantly, the two gunshots to his face, one to his eye and another to the crown of his head were likely the final shots fired, per the autopsy.

“In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,’ ” Dr. Michael Baden, the man who conducted the findings on Brown stated.

The revelation of the autopsy comes less than hours after another round of police force being used on protestors in Ferguson, using tear gas canisters on protestors, temporarily arrested media members as well as some canisters hitting children.

Brown was killed last Saturday afternoon outside of an apartment in Ferguson. Controversy has spread nationwide about the case, including the urging of community leaders, celebrities and more to speak on the matter. J.Cole, without any warning or heads up appeared in Ferguson on Sunday afternoon, days after his tribute song “Be Free” was released to the internet.
