Witnesses claim that Cleveland police beat a mortally wounded man seconds after an officer shot him on Cleveland's East Side Saturday, but the county coroner said an autopsy found no signs of a beating.

"There were no bruises - no other injuries other than the gunshot wounds," Cuyahoga County Coroner Elizabeth Balraj said Sunday.
