Jose de la Trinidad autopsy report

Jose de la Trin­id­ad, a 36-year-old fath­er of two, was shot Nov. 10 by depu­ties who be­lieved he was reach­ing for a weapon fol­low­ing a po­lice pur­suit. But fam­ily mem­bers and a wit­ness to the shoot­ing said that De la Trin­id­ad, who was un­armed, was com­ply­ing with depu­ties and had his hands above his head when he was shot. His autopsy re­port, ob­tained by The Times, found he was struck by bul­lets five times in the back and twice more in the right hip and right fore­arm, also from be­hind.
