HUDSON, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio medical examiner says a United Arab Emirates citizen killed by a police officer after fleeing an Ohio Turnpike crash was shot five times.

The Summit County Medical Examiner said Tuesday 26-year-old Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri was shot once in the head, once in the face and three times in the left leg by Hudson police officer Ryan Doran.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation confirmed Monday that Alameri was unarmed when Doran shot the Case Western Reserve University law student Dec. 4 during what’s been described as a struggle in a wooded area near the turnpike. Doran is on paid administrative leave.

UAE officials met with investigators, medical examiners and local police last week. The UAE ambassador to the U.S. spoke with Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Monday.
