I think he said Michael [Brown] did. Then he opens his car again and tries to get out and as he stands up Michael just bum rushes him, and just shoves him back into his car, punches him in the face and then of course Darren grabs for his gun and Michael grabs the gun. At one point he's got the gun totally turned against his hip and then he shoves it away and the gun goes off."
"...Law enforcement investigators test the clothing and skin of people for GSR to determine if they were near a gun when it discharged. Gunshot residue can travel over 3–5 feet (0.9–1.5 meters) from the gun. At the farthest distance, only a few trace particles may be present...."
Gunshot residue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
How far the gun powder residue can travel might also depend on the kind of gun used. NTL, Wilson is claiming that MB was in very close proximity when the first gun shot was fired and yet the coroner didn't find any gun residue on his hands or body. So regardless if he was wounded at that point there still should have been residue on MB if he was as close as Wilson is claiming.

In fact, I'm wondering about whether there were any bruises or marks on Brown's neck, since Johnson claimed that Wilson grabbed Brown around the neck to yank him in the car. They concentrated on looking for evidence of a struggle by Brown but didn't mention any evidence of physical treatment against Brown by Wilson.

Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
1. A hypothetical situation that there is a plethora of witnesses in support of Wilson's version for which the only evidence whatsoever is a single rogue tweet by a reporter who has been on FMLA for six months.
2. Three eyewitnesses that we know actually exist and who all give similar accounts that directly contradict your assertion.
3. The transcript of the "game changer" video which doesn't actually match the what was said in the video, specifically the line "but he kept coming toward him" which was never said but to which you have taken the liberty of adding "or running."
Does that about cover it?
