Coroner: Arkansas deputy shot teen fatally in neck, arm

News

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas coroner’s report says a teenager shot by a deputy in June died of gunshot wounds to his neck and arm.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the Pulaski County coroner’s report released Wednesday said 17-year-old Hunter Brittain was killed during a predawn June 23 traffic stop when he stepped from his car and approached the deputy with something in his hand.

Brittain’s family has said the object was a jug of antifreeze used to chock a rear wheel because the car wouldn’t shift to park.

The Lonoke County sheriff fired Sgt. Michael Davis for not activating his body camera.
