An autopsy was performed on Tuesday and Davis’ death has been ruled a homicide, said Casey DeBlasio, a spokeswoman for the county prosecutor.
The victim suffered a gunshot wound by a metal air gun pellet that struck internal organs and caused massive internal bleeding, DeBlasio said. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are being reviewed, she said.
