Audio recording is said to have captured the moment 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot dead, and after being aired on CNN on Monday night, it’s certainly leaving people with a lot of unanswered questions.
The FBI reportedly questioned the man who captured the audio of the gunshots on his phone while he had a conversation with somebody, and in it, at least 10 gunshots can be heard being fired nearby. Not only does the audio out of Ferguson, Missouri show how many gunshots were fired, but it also shows that Officer Darren Wilson took a brief break in between rounds, as there seems to be some silence between the first six shots and the final four.
"I was very concerned about that pause…because it's not just the number of gunshots, it's how they're fired," Lopa Blumenthal, attorney for the man who captured the audio, to CNN’s Don Lemon. "And that has a huge relevance on how this case might finally end up."
The brief break in between the firing of the shots has many people wondering if there have been any discrepancies in Wilson’s story.
“That was what caught my attention initially,” said Blumenthal. “It shows a point of contemplation.”
CNN says they have yet to corroborate the audio recording’s authenticity, but the man who captured it maintains that it’s real.
