I'm sorry alias I can't
I can't watch it

It's audio not video

(CNN) -- Could a newly released audio provide more clues on what led up to Michael Brown's shooting death?

The FBI has questioned a man who says he recorded audio of gunfire at the time Brown was shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police on August 9, the man's attorney told CNN.

In the recording, a quick series of shots can be heard, followed by a pause and then another quick succession of shots.

Forensic audio expert Paul Ginsberg analyzed the recording and said he detected at least 10 gunshots -- a cluster of six, followed by four.


"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 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.

The meaning of the pause

It's difficult to prove from the audio why the pause took place or whose narrative it supports.

Attorney Chris Chestnut said he was surprised by the gap in shots.

"It's the pause that gives most concern in a police shooting, especially with an unarmed victim, because at this point Mr. Brown is defenseless -- he has no weapon," said Chestnut, who represented the family of Jonathan Ferrell.

Like Brown, Ferrell was an unarmed African-American man who was shot and killed by a white police officer.

But if the gunfire heard on the audio is indeed from the Brown incident, the pause doesn't automatically suggest wrongful intent by the officer.

"To be fair, there could be other explanations for that pause," said attorney Van Jones, co-host of CNN's "Crossfire." "Maybe the officer will say, 'Well, I fired and he kept advancing, so I fired again.' "

Witnesses and a friend of Officer Darren Wilson have given conflicting accounts of what led up to Brown's death.

Dueling narratives in Michael Brown shooting

Dorian Johnson, a friend of Brown's who was walking with him at the time of the shooting, said the officer shot Brown once by the police car and again as he ran away.

According to Johnson, Brown was struck in the back and then turned around and put his arms up as the officer kept shooting.

But a woman who identified herself as a friend of Wilson called into a St. Louis radio show last week with what she said was the officer's version of events. The caller, who identified herself only as "Josie," said Brown taunted the officer and charged at him. Her account accurately matches what Wilson has told investigators, a source with detailed knowledge of the investigation told CNN.

An autopsy showed that all the entry wounds were in the front of Brown's body.


My god, HOW FAR WILL THEY GO TO PROTECT THIS GUY??? HOW FAR-FETCHED CAN THEY GET IN HIS DEFENSE???
I remember distinctly several of the witnesses mentioning the gap, that he stopped and started shooting again. But here they go talking about conflicting reports again.

I bet this "handful of witnesses to corroborate Wilson's story but havent spoke because they don't want to be part of the media spectacle" according to Don, have been paid off very well, OR they were not even really there

And this article is full of it. Dorian didn't say that Mike was struck in the back. He said that the officer shot at him while Mike was running!  It's a huge difference between "the bullet hit him in the back" and "he got shot at while his back was facing the officer"!  He probably got the bullet in his arm while he was running. Who wrote this article? What kind of reporter is this? THEY REALLY WANT TO PROTECT HIM THAT BAD????

OMG. And I missed this gem

"An autopsy showed that all the entry wounds were in the front of Brown's body."

I watched the two pathologists during the press conference. They clearly said that one of the bullets that perforated his arm could have very well entered through the back of his arm, as if he was running and, facing away but also acknowledged that it could have happened why he was facing the officer with his hands up because the arm is a very mobile part of the body. They distort everything to fit in with what they want their version to be. Who wrote this?

I'm just astounded. Even reporters whose job it is to state facts are doing the utmost to change the story...

People will hear what they want to hear. I'm tired of seeing white people on Facebook talk about him shoplifting when the PD AND shop owner have clarified that the incidents are not related. And bull about violent people will be met with a violent end.

They are missing the point ENTIRELY and it makes me sick how people can be so blinded by their privileged.
