While Davis’s ballistics expert found the bullets likely came from a 9 mm gun like those used by law enforcement officers, he could not determine the trajectory of the bullets.
GBI spokesman Scott Dutton said of the more 90 shots fired, investigators identified roughly three attributed to Robinson’s gun. Dutton said agents tried to recover all the bullets and shell casings, but in a case with so many shots fired it’s not unusual not to locate every piece of evidence. He said investigators had told the family if they find anything else to contact them.
The final medical examiner’s report is expected next week, but “preliminary information from the medical examiner is there’s no indication of any close range shots or a gunshot to the head,”Dutton said.Task force supervisor Jim Joyner said in addition to the GBI inquiry, the Marshals are conducting an internal investigation into the shooting. He said the Marshals welcome anyone to investigate the shooting. He said his officers have nothing to hide.
“There is nothing to be covered up or kept in the dark about this shooting,” he said.
