An alleged Michael Brown shooting audio recording has surfaced. A Ferguson man, who was having a video chat with a friend, is suspected to have unknowingly recording the audio of the incident as it happened. According to CNN, the man was wearing earbuds and did not realize that the shooting could be heard in the background.
In the recording you can hear a quick series of shots, then a pause, and more shots. Forensics experts have detected at least 10 shots. First the six, then followed by four more.
“I was very concerned about that pause … because it’s not just the number of gunshots, it’s how they’re fired,” the man’s attorney, Lopa Blumenthal, told CNN’s Don Lemon. “And that has a huge relevance on how this case might finally end up.”
The FBI is now questioning the anonymous man who lives near the site where Brown was killed.
The man, who asked that his identity not be revealed, lives near the site of the shooting and was close enough to have heard the gunshots, his attorney said.
He was speaking to a friend on a video chat service and happened to be recording the conversation at the same time Brown was shot, Blumenthal said. The attorney said she learned of the man’s recording late last week from a mutual friend.
“I had to get his consent before I could reach out to the FBI,” Blumenthal said.
CNN cannot independently verify the authenticity of the tape and has asked the FBI for confirmation of their interview with the man who made the recording.
Brown was laid to rest yesterday morning.
