(AP) -

   An autopsy has determined that an 18-year-old suspect who was shot by Chicago police died from a gunshot wound to the back.
   The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death of Paul O'Neal of Chicago was a homicide. The shooting occurred Thursday night during a stolen vehicle investigation.
   Authorities have said officers stopped a Jaguar convertible that had been reported stolen. Police said officers opened fire after the driver, identified as O'Neal, put the car in drive and sideswiped a squad car and a parked vehicle.
   O'Neal was later pronounced dead at a hospital.
   Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson on Friday relieved two officers of their police powers following the shooting. Police say investigators are still reviewing the actions of a third officer involved in the shooting.
   O'Neal was black; police have not provided any identifying information about the officers who were involved.
