The source also told the Post that Brown had been shot six to eight times, all from the front, per the county's investigation. Those findings would be consistent with an independent autopsy ordered by the Brown family and released Monday.

The Justice Department has also ordered its own autopsy of Brown and has undertaken a separate investigation into the shooting.

The leak follows questions about the appropriateness of Ferguson police last week releasing an incident report on the robbery allegedly committed by Brown minutes before he was shot.
