Forensic evidence may corroborate accounts by police in Ferguson, Missouri, that teenagerMichael Brown was involved in a scuffle with an officer before he was shot and killed, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation.
The evidence examined as part of a federal probe shows that the 18-year-old’s blood was on an inside panel of the police car and on the officer’s gun, which was fired twice inside the vehicle, said the official, who asked not to be identified without authorization to speak publicly. The information, first reported by the New York Times last night on its website, came from forensics tests performed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
