Andrew Brown Jr. died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head, according to the state autopsy report, confirming the results of an autopsy commissioned by Brown's family.

(CNN)Andrew Brown Jr. died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head, according to the state autopsy report, confirming the results of an autopsy commissioned by Brown's family.

Brown, a 42-year-old Black man, was fatally shot on April 21 by Pasquotank County deputies in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, as they were attempting to serve a warrant for his arrest.

Pasquotank County District Attorney Andrew Womble concluded that the shooting -- which Brown's family described as an execution -- was justified, saying Brown "recklessly" drove at the officers on the scene while trying to flee arrest.

"The autopsy results prove what we've always known to be true: Pasquotank County deputies executed Andrew Brown Jr. with a kill shot to the back of the head," family attorneys Ben Crump, Bakari Sellers, Harry Daniels and Chantel Cherry-Lassiter said Thursday in a statement.

An autopsy commissioned by Brown's family and their attorneys said Brown suffered gunshot wounds to the right arm and one to the back of his head.
