A Michael Brown shooting audio recording has allegedly surfaced. A Ferguson man engaged in a video chat with a friend unknowingly recorded the gunshots fired by Darren Wilson at Mike Brown. The man was wearing earbuds and did not realize that the shooting could be heard in the background, according to CNN.
In the Mike Brown shooting recording a series of six shots appear to be heard, followed by a brief pause, and then about four more shots are allegedly heard leaving Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s gun. Forensic audio expert Paul Ginsberg confirmed hearing 10 gunshots, a deemed the first gunshots a “cluster or six.” Ginsberg said the “Big Mike” audio recording would very likely be reviewed as evidence by the grand jury. The forensic expert told CNN the pause was significant; it could have been officer Darren Wilson reloading his weapon, or indicate some type of action by either the officer or Brown which prompted the following four shots. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Michael Brown was shot six times. An autopsy performed on Michael Brown reportedly showed that all entry wounds were in the front of the body.
“I was very concerned about that pause because it’s not just the number of gunshots; it’s how they’re fired. And that has a huge relevance on how this case might finally end up” Lopa Blumenthal, the attorney for the man who captured the Mike Brown shooting audio tape, told CNN personality Don Lemon.
Blumenthal’s unidentified client claims to live near the Michael Brown shooting. The man said he must have been standing close enough to where Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson encountered Dorian Johson and Mike Brown to record the gunshots while in the midst of a video chat. The conversation between the man and another party can be heard as gunshots erupt in the background.
Chris Chestnut, an attorney who represented the family of Jonathan Ferrel, had this to say about the Mike Brown shooting audio:
“It’s the pause that gives most concern in a police shooting, especially with an unarmed victim, because, at this point, Mr. Brown is defenseless – he has no weapon.”
Jonathan Ferrell was also an unarmed black man shot and killed by a white police officer. “To be fair, there could be other explanations for that pause. Maybe the officer will say, ‘Well I fired, and he kept advancing, so I fired again,'” attorney Van Jones added.
