A day after Michael Brown's funeral service, new audio could lead to some clarity for the family of Brown and what led up to his fatal death. The recording was released this morning (August 26), and allegedly contains audio captured during a Ferguson resident's video chat at the time of the shooting. CNN, who provided the tape, says the authenticity of the tape has yet to be verified, but what appears to be gunfire can be heard in the background of the call. Forensic audio expert Paul Ginsberg analyzed the recording and said he detected at least 10 gunshots.  Several shots are fired in succession, there is a brief pause, and then more shots are fired. Throughout the investigation, law enforcement officials and bystanders have provided differing accounts of what led to the fatal shooting. Witnesses say that Officer Darren Wilson, 28, fired on the unarmed teen as he had his hands up to surrender. However, Wilson supporters say Brown was bull-rushing Wilson, who then shot Brown in self-defense. The shooting has caused racial tensions, which has resulted in several days and nights of protests, riots, looting, and unrest.
