ABILENE, Texas - A man who was shot and killed by Abilene police this summer had alcohol, cocaine and a prescription drug in his system, according to an autopsy report.
Miguel Martinez, 49, was shot several times in early August by two officers.
Officers said he had broken into his estranged wife's home on North 17th Street and had pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her. When they arrived on the scene, they said they found him in the backyard shed and he pointed a gun at them, prompting them to open fire, police said.
A justice of the peace released the full autopsy report Tuesday.
According to the report, Martinez died of gunshot wounds to the chest. He was shot six times. He also had alcohol, cocaine and a prescription drug in his system.
The officers involved have returned to duty.
"The internal investigation into this officer-involved shooting supports the belief that the officers acted with necessary and reasonable force.," Assistant Police Chief Mike Perry said. "The Texas Ranger investigation awaits a grand jury review."
