Autopsy Shows Jefferson Parish Deputies Shot Modesto Reyes In The Back

An independent autopsy is contradicting Sheriff Joe Lopinto's story surrounding the controversial shooting of Modesto Reyes.

According to Lopinto, a deputy opened fire on Reyes because he pointed a gun at an officer.

However, lawyers for the Reyes family claimed their autopsy directly contradicts the sheriff's version of the story.

The family claimed the gun was in Reyes's backpack and not in his hand when he was shot.

According to the family lawyer, he was shot directly in the back without holding a gun in his hand.
