Darren Wilson to break silence tonight on ABC

Posted on

George Stephanopoulos

George Stephanopoulos has landed Darren Wilson.

The ABC News anchor has an exclusive interview with the Ferguson police officer responsible for the Aug. 9 shooting death of Michael Brown.

Stephanopoulos said on the air that Wilson “did say that he was sorry for the loss of life but he would not do anything different that day. He said he did what he was trained to do. He did his job. He says he has a clean conscience over his actions that day even though he’s sorry for the loss of life.”

Wilson also told Stephanopoulos that he would still have shot and killed Brown if he were white.

Wilson told ABC News that Brown reached into his car and grabbed his gun. He described how Brown charged toward him and he felt that he had to shoot Michael Brown.

The sit-down interview will air Tuesday night on World News with David Muir and on Nightline and on Wednesday on Good Morning America. The full interview will be available on ABCNews.com tomorrow.

A St. Louis County grand jury decided Monday not to indict Wilson in the fatal shooting of Brown.
