(Corrects that autopsy finds bullets did not appear to have been fired from very close range, paragraph 2)

Aug 17 (Reuters) - A private autopsy report shows that Michael Brown, the black teen killed by a police officer in the suburban St. Louis city of Ferguson, was shot at least six times, the New York Times reported on Sunday night.

Citing Dr. Michael M. Baden, former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, the newspaper reported that Brown, 18, was shot twice in the head, and that the bullets that entered his body did not appear to have been fired from very close range.
