COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A coroner says preliminary autopsy results indicate the man who attacked people with a machete in an Ohio restaurant and was shot by a policeman died of a gunshot to the neck.

The Franklin County coroner says 30-year-old Mohamed Barry had multiple gunshot wounds. The final autopsy report, including toxicology results, is expected to take weeks.

Four people were hurt in the Thursday assault at Nazareth Restaurant and Deli in northeast Columbus.

Authorities confirmed Barry was from the West African nation of Guinea but haven’t released details about him or a possible motive.

A police spokesman said information connected to the getaway car’s registration triggered an alert that required contacting the local terrorism task force, which contacted the FBI.

The chief has said Barry wasn’t known to Columbus police.
