Darren Wilson Testifies That Mike Brown Attacked Him Prior To Shooting
The cop who fatally shot unarmed teen Michael Brown — setting off a wave of protests in Ferguson, Mo.— told investigators he feared for his life when he pulled the trigger, it was reported Friday.
Officer Darren Wilson told federal officials that Brown, who was 18, had shoved him into his SUV and grabbed for his gun, according to The New York Times.
The weapon went off twice in Wilson’s SUV as the men grappled Aug. 9, FBI forensics show.
Wilson, 28, has told investigators Brown punched and scratched him, The Times said, citing unnamed government officials briefed on the federal civil rights investigation.
The teen’s blood was found on the gun, Wilson’s uniform and in the SUV.
Wilson testified for four hours before a St. Louis County grand jury last month.
He has yet to explain why he shot Brown six times outside the SUV.
Wilson’s version also contradicted what several eyewitnesses said about the incident.
Even if every word of Darren Wilson’s story is legit, it still doesn’t explain putting 6 slugs into Mike Brown’s back.
