OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma’s medical examiner says a deaf man killed by an Oklahoma City police officer after not responding to commands was shot five times in the chest, pelvis and upper arm.

The autopsy, released Thursday, also shows that a stun gun was used on Magdiel Sanchez, who was fatally shot Sept. 19 outside of his home.

Prosecutors have not yet determined whether the fatal shooting was justified.
