CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story confused the entrance wounds from bullets that entered Boyd’s arms. It has been updated with corrected information.
The homeless man shot and killed by Albuquerque police in the Sandia Foothills in mid-March was shot three times, including in the lower-left back, and had no alcohol or illegal drugs in his system, according to an autopsy and toxicology report released by the Office of the Medical Investigator on Thursday.
James Boyd was seen on helmet-cam video March 16 as officers tried to coax him out of the foothills, where he’d been camping illegally. He brandished two small knives at officers but appeared to agree to leave and to begin walking down the hill when officers shot at him.
