Today, May 18th, the Fremont County Coroner’s Office released the report for 56-year-old James Hinman who initiated gunfire with law enforcement on April 15th. Hinman died two days after the standoff from what was reported to be a fatal wound sustained during the gunfire.
The coroner report released today lists Hinman’s cause of death as “multiple gunshot wounds” and manner of death as “homicide.” The report also lists a .184 BAC under relevant toxicology.
The case remains under investigation and Fremont County Attorney Patrick LeBrun had no comment on the case status today. However, LeBrun did clarify that all homicide means is one person’s death is caused by another person, and no judgment is attached to it.
