ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – A witness spoke exclusively with Fox2 News about what he saw when a Ferguson police officer shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last Saturday at Canfield Green Apartments. The man who does not want to be identified, says Brown was not armed and had his hands in the air, as if surrendering, when the officer opened fire striking him several times. He also says Brown appeared to be quiet and shy and talked with him about Jesus.

St. Louis County Police say Brown struggled with the officer in his squad car before the shooting. The Justice Department, FBI, and St. Louis County Police are investigating.
