Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields says the man shot and killed by two Sheriff’s deputies Tuesday morning died as a result of the gunshot wounds, and the preliminary manner of death is homicide.
Shields says 24-year-old Daniel Boyer was hit with four bullets.
“Preliminary autopsy results revealed one of the bullets entered through Mr. Boyer’s front left upper leg/thigh and traveled upward penetrating his aorta, liver, and lung,” Shields said in a statement Friday.
Boyer suffered three other gunshot wounds: one bullet entered the front of the left thigh and exited out the lower left back; one entered the second knuckle of his right index finger and lodged in his wrist; and one bullet superficially wounded his left lower back.
A toxicology report is pending.
They say Boyer exited the mobile home and pointed a semi-automatic handgun at them. Moxley and Teague both fired their weapons; it’s unclear how many shots were fired. Both deputies were wearing body cameras, but the footage has not been released.
Police say Boyer did not fire the gun in his hand.
