SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) — An autopsy report says a North Carolina man shot and killed by police who were trying to serve a search warrant last November suffered 10 gunshot wounds.

The Salisbury Post reports (http://bit.ly/2itc5Ow) the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said 22-year-old Ferguson Claude Laurent Jr., who was black, had 10 gunshot wounds, including one in the head and five in the torso.

Laurent was shot when officers went to a residence to serve the warrant. Salisbury Police Chief Jerry Stokes has said Laurent fired once at police officers, and one officer fired two shots in response.

A department statement said it doesn’t have copies of the autopsy and toxicology results, but expects more details once the State Bureau of Investigation completes its investigation and the district attorney reviews the report.
