Transcript of Michael Brown Case

The circumstances of Michael Brown's death on Aug. 9 are in dispute. The police said that Mr. Brown was shot during a fight for the officer’s gun, while some witnesses say Mr. Brown’s hands were in the air when the last of several shots was fired.
A private autopsy requested by the family of Mr. Brown showed that he was shot at least six times: four times in the right arm and twice in the head. The autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York.

Dr. Baden said that one of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it hit him, and caused a fatal wound.
No gunshot residue was found on the body, which would indicate that the rounds were not fired from very close range; however, Dr. Baden did not have access to Mr. Brown’s clothing, which could contain residue.
Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed Saturday, Aug. 9, by Darren Wilson, a police officer, in Ferguson, MO., a suburb of St. Louis. The killing ignited more than a week of protest and has drawn outrage on social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook.
