Maui police released the results today of a toxicology report conducted in the wake of a deadly police-involved shooting in South Maui earlier this year.

According to the report, Marshall M.K. Langford had “high levels of methamphetamine and amphetamine in his body at the time of his death.”

Langford was fatally shot on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, when police responded to a report of a stolen vehicle at the parking lot of the Mana Kai Resort.

When officers arrived, authorities say they found Langford in the vehicle. Police say the suspect attempted to flee the scene, and while doing so, allegedly pulled out a handgun and pointed it at an officer. The officer responded, police say, by firing his weapon.


The account has been disputed by family members who maintain that the gun was not within reach.  They are hoping that surveillance or eye-witness accounts will help to answer lingering questions.
