North Carolina's state medical examiner has confirmed that Andrew Brown Jr. was killed by a gunshot to the back of the head in a police shooting in April.

The state's report on Brown's death was published on Thursday and obtained by WTVD.

The report also found that the manner of death was a homicide.

Thursday's state report matches up with findings from an independent autopsy commissioned by Brown's family in April.
