WASHINGTON (AP) -- Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal medical examiner to perform a third autopsy on Michael Brown.

The 18-year-old was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer earlier this month. The New York Times reports a preliminary private autopsy found Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head. Results of a state-performed autopsy have not been released.
