Last night protests proceeded in Ferguson, Missouri in retaliation to the death of Mike Brown, who was shot and killed by an area police officer. According to reports, the teen was unarmed.
Now, new details from an eye witness reveal the chilling account that lead to tragedy. Wednesday evening Tiffany Mitchell told CNN what she saw as she captured part of the incident on her camera phone.
“It looked as if Michael was pushing off and the cop was trying to pull him in”, said Mitchell, in recollection of the 18-year-old’s death. Since Saturday, the city of Ferguson has been the site of nightly protests. Photos reveal Molotov cocktails, tear gas and unruly crowds.
Authorities say the officer who shot and killed Brown was injured during the altercation and is shaken up by the fatal incident. The officer’s identity is being withheld.
