SALT LAKE CITY -- The family of Darrien Hunt, the man who was shot and killed by Saratoga Springs police, released a state-ordered autopsy to show that he was shot in the back.

The report, released to FOX 13 by Hunt family attorney Robert Sykes on Tuesday morning, states that the 22-year-old man was shot in the back at least three times.

He was shot a total of six times, the autopsy said.

Toxicology tests were conducted but the autopsy revealed no drugs were found in his system.

Hunt's family paid for their own autopsy which had similar findings.

The young man was shot in a confrontation with police outside a convenience store in Saratoga Springs on Sept. 10.

Police said he lunged at them while wielding a "samurai-type" sword before being shot.
