LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — An attorney says a private autopsy on the man killed by Lafayette police last month, Trayford Pellerin, found he had been shot 10 times.
Trayford Pellerin, who police said had a knife and was trying to enter a convenience store, was killed by officers on Aug. 21 in Lafayette.
The Daily Advertiser reports that Ronald Haley, an attorney for Pellerin’s family, said in a news release that Pellerin was killed in a hail of gunfire.
The shooting death has since prompted protests in Lafayette.
