Ahmaud Arbery Autopsy: Shot 3 Times, No Drugs or Alcohol in His System
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has announced the autopsy results for Ahmaud Arbery.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation released autopsy results late Monday night, which showed Arbery had been shot three times.
The Glynn County coroner’s office conducted the autopsy on Feb. 24, the day after Arbery’s death in a Brunswick, Georgia neighborhood.
The coroner’s report shows two close range gunshots hit Arbery’s chest: one in the upper left chest and a second in the lower chest near his lungs. The third bullet grazed his right wrist.
“This 25-year-old died of multiple gunshots wounds sustained during a struggle for the shotgun,” according the report dated April 1.
As a routine check, the GBI said neither drugs nor alcohol were found in his system.

The autopsy results appear to line up with the video leaked on social media showing Arbery’s death. At least three gunshots could be heard in the video before Arbery fell to the ground.
The shooting death of Arbery, an unarmed black man, at the hands of two white men has sparked outrage.
