Actor killed by L.A. police shot in the back & the back of the head -- the wounds appeared to contradict police accounts that Anthony Dwain Lee, who carried a fake .357 Magnum gun as an apparent part of his Halloween costume, pointed the gun at Officer Tarriel Hopper, causing the patrolman to fear for his life and shoot in response.

"A police spokesman had no immediate comment on the report, but Lt. Horace Frank told the Times the shots in the back could be explained. "

Uh, Horace? We're all ears here.
