HAZELWOOD, MO (KTVI) - The FBI is examining a videotape that may contain evidence in connection with the shooting of Michael Brown. A resident of Canfield Green Apartments recorded the tape while chatting with a friend on a Glide app. The twelve second recording includes his image, his conversation and audio of a series of gunshots being fired in the background.

Lopa Blumenthal, the attorney who represents the tape's owner, believes the shots were fired when Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Brown more than two weeks ago. Blumenthal says the resident does not want to be identified, but wanted authorities to have the tape. He has been questioned by the FBI, which is checking to determine whether the tape is authentic. An attorney representing the Brown family says the videotape should be presented to the Grand Jury.
