Autopsy: Utah Man Killed by Police While Running Away

A 22-year-old Black man with a sword may have been running away when Utah police fatally shot him "numerous" times from behind last week, an attorney for the man's family said over the weekend.

The attorney cited independent autopsy results on Darrien Hunt's body that appear to contradict investigators' account of what happened outside a Panda Express in Saratoga Springs on Wednesday morning.

Officials said Hunt had "lunged" at officers with the sword before they shot him. But the attorney for Hunt's family, Randall K. Edwards, said the autopsy results found that "none of these shots were from Darrien’s front."
