    I thought I read someplace that there were witnesses that said the officer stood over Michael and shot him at close range, but the autopsy report states the shots seemed to be fired from a distance.

    Either is horrendous, but just what really happened?  It seems to contradict reports that a shot was fired from inside the vehicle itself.  

    It does lend credence that he was gunned down execution style however, as more than likely the shot that hit the top of his head was possibly because he was already in a surrender position or on his knees facing the officer.  That makes it even more disturbing.
