AC360 Exclusive Video: Eyewitnesses Reaction to Michael Brown Shooting

AC360° has new exclusive video that captures the reaction of two eyewitnesses immediately following the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The two men seen in video, who were about 50 feet away from Michael and Officer Darren Wilson, detailed their account to CNN’s Randi Kaye.

Both men are contractors who were working in the area at the time of the shooting. The video shows one of the eyewitnesses raising his arms in the air — just as, he says, Brown was doing when he was shot. The other contractor told CNN he saw Brown running away from a police car. Brown “put his hands up,” he said, and “the officer was chasing him.” The contractor says he saw Wilson fire a shot at Brown while his back was turned.
