Eyewitness: Michael Brown Had His Hands in the Air Before He Was Killed

‘The cop continued to fire until he just dropped down to the ground, and his face just smacked the concrete’

MITCHELL: "I don't know exactly what was going on, but I know it didn't look right for somebody to be wrestling with the police through the police window. But I didn't get the video, because a shot was fired through the window. So I tried to get out the way. As I pulled onto the side -- the kid, he finally gets away, and he starts running. As he runs, the police get out of his vehicle, and he follows behind him, shooting. And the kid body jerked as if he was hit from behind. And he turned around and he puts his hands up like this. And the cop continued to fire until he just dropped down to the ground, and his face just smacks the concrete."
