    The story
    A man killed by New Orleans police in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina was shot in the back, according to an autopsy report CNN obtained.

    That autopsy finding seems to raise questions about the police department's conclusion that its officer fired only because his life was in danger.

    Danny Brumfield, 45, was shot outside the New Orleans Convention Center in the early hours of September 2, 2005, after he stepped in front of a patrol car. He wound up on the car's hood with shears or scissors in his hand
