Citty said a revised autopsy report is underway.
Salazar's attorneys said the sudden change is startling.
"It's very surprising. I don't think that I've seen that occur before," said Salazar's attorney Noble McIntyre. "It certainly happened quickly, or the chief of police was able to get the report changed quickly. We have no control over that. The family has been sitting back patiently to wait and see what the reports say."
It was August 24 when police said they responded to a burglary call that led to a vehicle pursuit and a foot chase, but Salazar's attorneys said the car was not stolen, it was in Salazar's name.
"For a crime of fleeing police and stabbing a dog in self-defense, after the dog attacks you, under Oklahoma law the maximum sentence for killing a police dog is two years," said David Bernstein, also Salazar's attorney, who said he believes excessive force was used the night Salazar died. "In Mark's case, he got the death penalty instantly."
Oklahoma City police said they are wrapping up their investigation and will turn over their report to the McClain County District Attorney, who will determine if the shooting was justified.
