A Michael Brown shooting grand jury witness from Ohio claims to have seen the scenario with Officer Darren Wilson unfold from start to finish. During an interview with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Mike Brown shooting eyewitness claimed he recalled four key details which happened during what began as a routine police stop.
The Darren Wilson grand jury witness said a “scuffle” occurred in the car, and the Ferguson police officer did not fire until Mike Brown turned back around and was facing him. The witness maintains that he saw Michael Brown put his arms out to his sides, but stated that the teenager did not raised his hands high into the air.
The Ferguson shooting grand jury witness also stated during the interview that Mike Brown “staggered” toward Darren Wilson in spite of multiple commands to stop. If the unidentified witness is accurate, Brown and Wilson were approximately 20 feet apart when the final shots were fired.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, other alleged Michael Brown shooting witnesses claimed that the teen’s hands were raised in the air in the traditional surrendering position.
The Ohio witness, who is reportedly a black male, said he saw Darren Wilson’s police cruiser stop near Mike Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson. The witness further claimed that the Ferguson police officer stopped near the teenagers as they were walking down the middle of the street. Although not close enough to hear the words exchanged, the Ohio witness said that after the officer and the young men talked, the cruiser drove away and then backed up a few moments later.
A “tussle” then allegedly caught the eye of the Ferguson shooting witness, who watched the incident unfold from the right side of Wilson’s SUV police cruiser. The law enforcement officer’s hat came off during the encounter, if the witness’s claims and recollections are accurate. A gun shot as then reportedly heard, and Mike Brown ran away from Darren Wilson’s cruiser, the grand jury eyewitness maintains.
“Stop! Stop! Stop,” the officer supposedly yelled as Brown continued to run. Brown allegedly “mumbled something” that the witness did not hear, and then took a step toward Darren Wilson.
“When he stepped foot on that street, the officer told him to stop again, and he fired three shots. When he [Brown] got hit, he staggered like, ‘Oh’ and his body moved. Then he looked down,” according to the unidentified witness. “As he was firing those last rounds, Michael was on his way down. We were thinking, ‘Oh my God, oh my God, brother, stop, stop.’ He was already on his way down when he fired those last shots.”
When concluding his recollection of the Michael Brown shooting, the witness said in his opinion, “down, outright murder” had just occurred.
