The Washington County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released video and autopsy details from Saturday’s fatal shooting of Officer Stephen Carr.

Carr was sitting in his patrol car outside police headquarters Saturday night when London Phillips approached the vehicle and shot him several times at point-blank range.

The autopsy indicates that any of the 10 shots to Carr’s head would have been fatal.
