FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- A St. Louis County autopsy has found that the unarmed black teenager killed during a confrontation with a white police officer was shot six to eight times.

County medical examiner's office administrator Suzanne McCune says the autopsy showed Michael Brown was hit in the head and chest. McCune would not confirm whether Brown was hit elsewhere on his body or discuss other details.

Full findings of the autopsy aren't expected for about two weeks.

Earlier Monday, attorneys for Brown's family released details of their own autopsy and said Brown was shot at least six times. That procedure also found that one of the bullets entered the top of Brown's skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when he suffered the fatal injury.
