ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - As more information unfolds about the night Albuquerque Police officers shot and killed a man nearly a month ago, that man's brother says things shouldn't have gone down the way they did.
An autopsy report and 911 dispatch calls offer more insight into what happened before Vincent Wood was shot.
The autopsy report for Vincent Wood describes each of the nine gunshot wounds he received and at least six of them went through his back.
A security guard from Montgomery Plaza in northeast Albuquerque was first to call 911 July 5.
"There's a man at the bus stop with two big 'ol butcher knives, and he's wacked out of his mind, he already knows not to come on this property, he's extremely dangerous," the security guard says to to the 911 dispatcher.
Albuquerque Police were dispatched to a scene where 66-year-old Vincent Wood was reported to have two large knives and had just threatened two teens.
Less than five minutes later, shots were fired.
APD officer Katherine Wright, and officer Jeff Bludworth fired nine shots, killing Wood . Woods' brother says he didn't have to die.
"From what I understand there was a crisis intervention person pulling up on the scene," said Michael Allen, Wood's brother. "They couldn't have waited a little while longer?"
But that's not the only problem Wood's brother has with the way police handled the call. The Office of the Medical Investigator's autopsy report states at least six of the nine gunshot wounds Wood received traveled from back to front.
"I mean they shot him six times in the back? I mean you're not even supposed to shoot anybody in the back," said Allen.
APD Chief Ray Schultz told reporters shortly after the shooting that Wood lunged at an officer with the two knives.
"He pulls two large knives out of the bag both in one hand, he then transfers one of the knives into his other hand," Schultz demonstrated in a press conference.
The NAACP released a statement this weekend saying, "this shooting could have been prevented. It was unjustified, unnecessary and inhumane to shoot Mr. Woods nine times."
The NAACP said they have requested a meeting with Chief Schultz and the Interim Police Chief to discuss their concerns.
KRQE News 13 filed a public records request for lapel cam video from the night of the shooting. APD refused to turn it over, citing the pending investigation.
