We might never find out exactly what transpired between Michael Brown, an 18-year-old and a City of Ferguson, Missouri police officer who shot him 8 times for walking in the street instead of the sidewalk. Ferguson is a suburb of St. Louis.

Brown who was expected to start Vatterott College on August 10, was unarmed when he was killed around midday on Saturday at the 2900 Block of Canfield – Canfield Green Apartment complex.

During a news conference on Sunday, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said the fatal shooting of Brown occurred after an altercation that involved two people and a police officer.

According to Belmar, the officer tried to leave his vehicle just before the shooting on Saturday afternoon, but Brown pushed him back into the car, "where he physically assaulted the police officer" and struggled over the officer's weapon, Belmar said.

A shot was fired inside the police car, and Brown was eventually shot about 35 feet away from the vehicle, Belmar said, adding few details because he didn't want to "prejudice" the case.

“All shell casings collected at the scene were from the officer's weapon,” Belmar added. He also added that the medical examiner would issue a ruling on how many times Brown was shot, but "it was more than just a couple."
