Andrew Brown Jr. the North Carolina Black man who was killed by police in April, was shot in the back of the head, according to the official autopsy report released on Thursday afternoon.

The autopsy report, which was obtained by CBS News, says that Brown's cause of death was a "penetrating gunshot wound of the head." The manner of death was ruled a homicide. While the autopsy found a small amount of methamphetamine in Brown's system, the medical examiner said that the drug "likely did not play a role in Mr. Brown's cause or manner of death."

Brown was killed in April while the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office deputies were serving drug-related search and arrest warrants for him and he tried to flee the scene.
