Toxicology reports from the officer-involved shooting late last year in Hudson found very limited drugs in the body of Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri. 

Marijuana was the only drug found in Alameri, the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office said in a news release. 

Alameri, 26, was shot five times by officer Ryan Doran Dec. 4, 2016, after he sideswiped a vehicle and flipped his own on the Ohio Turnpike.

After the crash, Alameri got out of his car and ran away from the scene. He was later found by Doran in a nearby wooded area off of Hudson-Aurora Road. Authorities have said there was a struggle between the two before the fatal shooting. 

Doran can be heard on dash cam video shouting commands at Alameri before the shooting. The video does not actually capture the alleged fight and subsequent shooting. 

Alameri was found in a ravine with a close-range gunshot wound to his head. He was also shot once in the face and three times in the leg, authorities said. The medical examiner's office has ruled his death a homicide. 

Doran has been placed on paid administrative leave since the shooting.

The Bureau of Criminal Investigation is leading the case. They were awaiting Thursday's toxicology report and a final autopsy that has yet to be released to determine if the case needs to be further investigated.
