SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An autopsy report says a black man had 20 gunshot wounds and there were drugs in his system when he was killed by San Francisco police in December, a shooting that sparked protests and calls for the police chief’s removal.
The San Francisco Chronicle (http://sfg.ly/1o8oXdp ) says the report, released Thursday, found that Mario Woods had wounds in his head, back, abdomen, buttocks, legs and hands — although multiple wounds might be from the same bullet.
Drugs found in Woods’ system included methamphetamine, marijuana, antidepressants and cough medicine.
The 26-year-old was shot in the city’s Bayview neighborhood on Dec. 2. Police say five officers opened fire after Woods stabbed a stranger and then refused to drop the knife. The shooting was captured on video.
