An autopsy of Keith Scott has concluded that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to a report in The New York Times.
The Times says the results of the autopsy are in, and that Scott’s mother, Sherry Scott, called the findings a “sad day.”
Scott’s father, Earl Scott, said he was relieved the results were conclusive.
“I think it’s a sad day for us, for our family, for the city,” Earl Scott said.
The shooting happened on Wednesday night, according the Times.
A man and woman were in Scott’s home at the time.
He was shot three times and died at a hospital.
A second woman, Sherri Jenkins, was also shot and died from her injuries on Thursday.
The couple’s son was arrested on Wednesday in connection with the shooting.
Sheriff’s deputies were called to the family’s home on the 2600 block of W. 54th Street, but it turned out that the shooting had happened earlier, according reports.
The man who was arrested told investigators that he and his son had been at a home party in the 2600 blocks of W 54th St. before going out to smoke weed.
He said that a group of people who were smoking weed started yelling at them.
They told the man to get back in the house and when they got back in their car, the man saw a woman walking around with a handgun.
He got out and told the woman to drop it.
She did and that’s when the man was shot, according police reports.
Sheriff Deputies arrested Earl Scott and charged him with attempted murder, aggravated assault and armed robbery.
They also arrested Sherry Jenkins, who was charged with assault and battery on a public servant, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and possession of marijuana.
The sheriff’s office says it’s investigating the shooting as a possible hate crime.
