Eyewitness in Ferguson Police Shooting Says It Was 'Murder'
As the investigation into the fatal police shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown continues, more eye witnesses to the tragedy are slowly coming forward to tell their version of what happened that fateful day.
The lawyer for Dorian Johnson, the man who was walking with Brown when he was killed, spoke to Sean Hannity on Thursday about the case and what exactly Johnson witnessed.
Freeman Bosley, the attorney who is representing Johnson, gave his client's series of events that led to Brown's shooting.
Bosley said Johnson and Brown were walking down the middle of the street, and when an officer told them to get out of the street, they kept walking.
The officer backed up the car and brought it extremely close to them, where they had an exchange. The officer then reached out the window and grabbed Brown by the throat.
Brown attempted to get away from the officer, who then grabbed Brown's shirt. However, Brown was too big for the officer to control through the car.
According to Bosley's client, the officer then said, "I’m going to shoot you," and shot at the car, but not from inside the vehicle.
Johnson and Brown ran away, with Johnson hiding behind a car and the officer firing another shot, this one hitting Brown in the back.
Brown turned around and had some type of conversation with the officer before the officer closed the gap between them, continuing shooting as he neared Brown.
According to Bosley, the officer shot Brown seven times, and one of them was in the head.
Bosley said Johnson will testify that it was "murder."
