Examiners investigating what happened when the 25-year-old Miami local was killed have discovered that he was killed by gunfire from Islamic State-connected contenders and was not caught, as indicated by an Associated Press cover Sunday. The Oct. 4 ambush took place about 120 miles north of Niamey, the African nation's capital.

According to the officials, a medical examination concluded that Johnson was hit by fire from M-4 rifles - probably stolen by the insurgents - and Soviet-made heavy machine guns. It is believed he died in the attack.

Authorities in the report said that there was no sign that Johnson had been shot at short proximity.

That claim counters what his mom Cowanda Jones-Johnson and whatever is left of his family were initially told, and she revealed to CNN Monday morning that the "seven unique stories" that she has heard just add to her hurt.

The other Americans killed were: Staff Sgt. Bryan C. Black, 35, of Puyallup, Wash.; Staff Sgt. Jeremiah W. Johnson, 39, of Springboro, Ohio; and Staff Sgt. Dustin M. Wright, 29, of Lyons, Ga. Wilson overheard the phone call and publicly denounced Trump's remarks.

John Kelly, a former four-star Marine general and Trump's chief of staff, joined the controversy by saying he was stunned at Wilson's remarks, calling the congresswoman an "empty barrel".
