The latest twist in the controversy over the shooting of MICHAEL BROWN by FERGUSON, MO police officer DARREN WILSON is the possible revelation of WILSON's side of the story in a call by a friend to EMMIS News-Talk KFTK/ST. LOUIS and RADIO AMERICA syndicated host DANA LOESCH.
CNN reports that the caller, using the name "JOSIE," described a chain of events that CNN's sources with "detailed knowledge of the investigation" said was an "accurate" match for what WILSON told investigators. She told LOESCH that WILSON rolled down his window to tell BROWN and his friend to stop walking down the middle of the street, whereupon, she asid, BROWN pushed WILSON back into his car as the officer tried to get out, then allegedly punched WILSON in the face and grabbed for his gun, which fired once in the struggle. BROWN and his friend then ran, pursued by WILSON, who ordered the two to stop. She said BROWN taunted WILSON and then ran back at the officer at full speed, getting shot and killed.
The call to LOESCH, if it is an accurate recounting of WILSON's story, is the first time the officer's version of events has been offered in public. Listen to the segment here.
