Josie: "They were walking in the middle of the street. He rolled his window down and said, 'Come on guys. Get out of the street.' They refused to and were yelling back, saying we're almost where we're going and there was some cussing involved."
Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson also said Wilson approached Brown because he was "walking down the middle of the street, blocking traffic."
Josie: "So he goes in reverse back to them. He tries to get out of his car. They slam his door shut violently. 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."
"The genesis of this was a physical confrontation," St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said.
Wilson tries to exit his vehicle but Brown pushes him back into the car, according to the preliminary investigation, Belmar said.
Brown physically assaults the police officer and there is a struggle over the officer's gun, Belmar said.
A shot is fired inside the police car....."
