‘I Just Saw Someone Die’: Photos from Man Who Seemingly Witnessed Michael Brown Shooting


In the wake of the sketchy timeline given by the Ferguson Police Department concerning the death of Michael Brown, a Rolling Stone reporter discovered the Twitter feed of a young man who appears to have live-tweeted the aftermath of Brown’s shooting.

“I JUST SAW SOMEONE DIE OMG,” tweeted @TheePharoah, soon tweeting an image of Brown’s body lying in the street.

He also noted that one of the policemen had an AR-15, and that Brown was shot seven times — twice in the back, and five times after he’d turned around to face the police. “The first two was clear, then it was a barage[sic] of them,” he added.

The time, date, and locations all match up with details surrounding the incident.

A majority of the tweets can be found below:
