CNN aired an interview on local radio in Ferguson, Missouri from a person who claims to know the shooting police officer Darren Wilson’s account of what happened.
CNN reported that there is an eyewitness account which corroborates Wilson’s side of the story and the audio below details why the officer may have been telling the truth about the shooting being an act of self-defense, as well as the fact that Mike Brown may have been tracked as a suspect in a robbery which occurred earlier in the day.
The account claims that Officer Wilson stopped Brown due to possibly seeing the teen carrying cigars. Officer Wilson told them to get out of the street. He pulled over and when he tried to get out of the car, twice, he was pushed back into his cruiser twice. Michael then punched him in the face and Darren reached for his gun, whereupon Michael grabbed the gun and a struggle ensued. Michael ran and Officer Wilson allegedly pursued, yelling at him to freeze. Michael then turned around, taunted the officer and saying that he wouldn’t shoot him. Brown then reportedly bum rushed the officer, whereupon Officer Wilson was forced to shoot.
