ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The gunman who killed 49 patrons at a gay nightclub in Orlando was hit by at least eight bullets as he died in a shoot-out with a SWAT team.

A report on the autopsy of Omar Mateen released Friday shows he was hit by bullets to his head, neck, chest, abdomen and foot.

No drugs or alcohol were found in his body, but his urine had higher levels of compounds often associated with dietary supplements used for bodybuilding than a healthy person typically has. The report also says his testosterone range was normal.

The Orlando medical examiner’s office also released reports on at least a dozen of the victims.

Mateen’s called 911 and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group during his June attack at the Pulse nightclub.
