Eyewitness: “The Officer Kept Shooting, He Fell to His Knees, He Shot Him in the Head”

Another eyewitness to Michael Brown’s shooting gives a consistent account
US News • Views: 24,694

Today in the LA Times, a story about Michael Brown and the Ferguson community includes yet another account from an eyewitness corroborating the previous testimony — that Michael Brown was on his knees begging for his life when officer Darren Wilson shot him in the head.

A woman who lives in the complex and asked not to be identified for fear of being targeted by residents and police said she heard the commotion and ran to her balcony. She said Brown threw his hands up in the air, shouting, “Don’t shoot!”

“The officer kept shooting and he fell to his knees, begging for his life,” the woman said. “That’s when he finished him off, shot him in the head.”

The woman said she works in a warehouse and moved here in March with her 2-year-old daughter to escape the violence in inner-city St. Louis.

She knows hard-core criminals, and said that Brown wasn’t one. He was not a known drug dealer, not a gang-banger.

“His death just pushed a lot of people over the edge,” she said.
