(KTVI)- Results of a private autopsy on the body of Michael Brown have been released. His family is set to hold a press conference about the results at Greater St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church Monday morning.

According to the autopsy report, Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer at least six times. His family and the doctor who performed the autopsy will hold their press conference at 9:30 am.

The New York Times reported that Brown was shot four times in the arm. He was also shot on the top of his head. The private autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Boden, former Chief Medical Examiner for the New York Police Department. Boden says all of the gunshots appeared to have been fired into Brown's front. He didn't find any gunpowder residue on his body. This suggests the shots were fired from a distance. The unarmed 18-year-old was shot to death August 9th by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

It is unclear exactly what led to the shooting that has created outrage in the community. The Department of Justice is now investigating.

Dr. Boden was flown in for the autopsy at the request of Micheal Brown`s family. He did not have access to Brown`s clothing and that could change his findings.
