It could take two weeks to a month for a final autopsy report to come back on a College Station man killed by a Grimes County Sheriff's deputy.

A preliminary autopsy revealed that Christopher Miller, 26, died from gunshots to the torso. The Grimes County District Attorney, Tuck McLain, says it will be a while before a toxicology report is completed on Miller. It should reveal what Miller may have had in his system.

Miller was discovered naked by Deputy Jason Smith who instructed him to lie on the ground. Officials say Miller advanced towards the deputy, who then fatally shot him twice in the chest.

Medical records have been subpoena by the DA's office to determine if Miller suffered from mental disorders.

The Grimes County DA's office is also investigating a compliant filed against a Navasota principal. The case was submitted to the DA's office on Friday.

Among other accusations, Navasota principal Brent Rumbo is accused of telling students to drop out of school and using excessive force against a student.

The Navasota School District is also investigating the compliant.
