Preliminary Autopsy Shows Raleigh Man Hit 4 Times By Officer

Remember, the initial “witness” reports stated that the officer shot criminal Akiel Denkins in the back

(WNCN) Preliminary results from the North Carolina Medical Examiner, according to Freeman, said, “There was a wound of his right chest with injuries of his heart and both lungs, and there were wounds of his left forearm, right upper arm, and right shoulder.”

The news release did not specify where the bullets entered. His mother has said she was told by a witness that he was shot in the back.

Sure seems as if they were to the front. I do find it interesting that there is so little national interest in this case, like with other cases. I guess the news media isn’t particularly interested without riots and violence.

And an update

A separate report from the Raleigh Police Department said that Senior Officer D.C. Twiddy and Akiel Denkins were struggling and that Denkins was reaching for a gun when he was shot. (snip)

As he came around the corner of the house, Twiddy saw Denkins attempting to climb a second fence. Denkins then stopped and turned toward Twiddy, according to the report.

Twiddy ran and grabbed Denkins in an effort to take him into custody. While the two struggled, Twiddy saw Denkins start to pull a handgun from the front of his waistband and move it toward Twiddy, the report states.

During the struggle, Twiddy drew his weapon and fired multiple shots as Denkins continued to move his gun in his direction, the report states. After the first shots were fired, Twiddy felt Denkins’ hand or arm make contact with his gun, and fearing that Denkins was going to shoot him or take his gun, he fired additional shots.

Sure looks like the story is breaking down for the “he was shot in the back while running. Why did those evil racist cops shoot him?” crowd. Oh, and Denkin’s gun was stolen.
