BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — A coroner says the bullet that killed a Bloomington man who pointed a handgun at officers entered his thigh and traveled upward, penetrating his aorta, liver and a lung.

The Herald-Times reports Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields released the cause and manner of death for 24-year-old Daniel Boyer on Friday following a Wednesday autopsy in Terre Haute. Results from toxicology tests are pending.

Monroe County Sheriff Brad Swain has said Boyer pointed a loaded handgun at Deputies Don Teague and Deandre Moxley while they served arrest warrants Tuesday morning at a mobile home in southwestern Monroe County. Both deputies fired their handguns, striking Boyer four times.

Teague and Moxley have been placed on paid administrative leave during an internal investigation into Boyer’s death.
