An autopsy shows that a University of North Carolina student was drunk when he was shot four times and killed by a police officer.
The North Carolina Medical Examiner's Office released the findings after toxicology results on 21-year-old Courtland Smith of Houston found alcohol in his system, but no sedative drugs.
Smith was killed in August after a highway confrontation with police in Randolph County. Smith said in a 911 call he was driving at high speed and wanted to kill himself, but he repeatedly told the dispatcher he wanted officers to stop him.
The autopsy found the fraternity president suffered gunshot wounds to the lower abdomen, the left thigh, the upper back and a fourth bullet that passed through his left forearm into his upper abdomen.
