A new witness to the shooting of Michael Brown has come forward saying the unarmed black teenager had his hands up and was running away from Officer Darren Wilson as he was gunned down in Missouri.
The man, who asked to not be identified, is a construction worker who witnessed the Aug. 9 shooting near an apartment complex in Ferguson.
He spoke to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch anonymously — and his account is the first time someone who neither knew Brown nor had ties to Ferguson corroborates accounts that the teenager had his hands up.
In the interview, the witness said Brown, 18, moved toward Officer Wilson in his final moments but it was unclear if Brown was moving in a ‘stumble to the ground’ or ‘OK, I’m going to get you, you’re already shooting me.’
‘I don’t know if he was going after him or if he was falling down to die,’ the man told the Post-Dispatch. ‘It wasn’t a bull rush.’
