The body of a Black man fatally shot by police officers in Akron, Ohio, Jayland Walker, was still in handcuffs when it arrived to the coroner’s office.

A medical examiner’s report was reviewed and included pictures of Walker’s body in the handcuffs, also when at the coroner’s office. His hands were cuffed behind his back.

An attorney for Walker’s relatives also disclosed that officers handcuffed Walker prior to attempting to administer first aid.

Police said that they pulled Walker over during a traffic stop on June 27. A car chase started, and Walker tried to flee.

Authorities say that they thought Walker had shot a gun from his vehicle during the pursuit. However, it was later learned that Walker was unarmed.

At some point, Walker had exited his vehicle and ran. Police stated that they attempted to use a taser on him but couldn’t.

Officers then shot dozens of rounds at Walker, with at least 60 of them hitting him.

Pictures in the medical examiner’s report depicted Walker with wounds covering his face, all the way down his sides, to his ankles.

The Ohio Bureau Of Criminal Investigations is investigating the incident.

Walker’s death has led to protests in Akron and other U.S. cities.
