Hudson Police Shooting Victim Was Unarmed, Shot Five Times: Update

Additional details are in the investigation of Saif Nasser Mubarak Al Ameri's death in Hudson last week. The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office has elaborated on its "homicide" ruling, reporting that Al Ameri was shot five times by police officer Ryan Doran (twice in the head, three times in his left leg).

The toxicology report on Al Ameri has yet to be released. The Hudson Police Department has not released its police report either.


Saif Nasser Mubarak Al Ameri was unarmed when Hudson police officer Ryan Doran shot and killed him on Dec. 4, according to the state's Bureau of Criminal Investigations.

Yousef Al Otaiba, the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the U.S., is in Hudson now to represent Al Ameri's family's interests as the aftermath of the shooting unfolds. (Al Ameri is a citizen of the UAE. He was in the States as a student at Case Western Reserve University.)

Beyond today's news, no other details from the police report have been released.

The investigation is ongoing.
