Missouri riots: FBI investigation opened into Michael Brown shooting | News.com.au

Brown “was giving up in the sense of raising his arms and being subdued,” Walker told the Associated Press on Monday. The officer “had his gun raised and started shooting the individual in the chest multiple times”. The officer then “stood over him and shot him” after the victim fell wounded.Dorian Johnson offered a similar account when he told KMOV-TV that he and Brown were walking home from a convenience store when a police officer told them to get out of the street and onto the sidewalk. Johnson said they kept walking, which caused the officer to confront them from his car and again after getting out of the vehicle.Johnson said the first time the officer fired, he and Brown got scared and ran away.“He shot again, and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air, and he started to get down,” Johnson said. “But the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”“We wasn’t causing harm to nobody,” Johnson said. “We had no weapons on us at all.”
