New witnesses to Michael Brown killing say he had his hands up

In the past week, new witnesses to the killing of Michael Brown have come forward publicly. Crucially, two construction workers who were on the scene did not previously know Brown or his family—and they say he had his hands up when police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot him. Not only that, this isn't something they've started saying only since hearing other witnesses describe the scene; a video shows the men standing and watching the immediate aftermath of the killing, with one of them raising his hands, apparently echoing what he'd just seen:

"He had his f**n hands up," one of the men says in the video.

The man told CNN he heard one gunshot, then another shot about 30 seconds later.

"The cop didn't say get on the ground. He just kept shooting," the man said.

The other worker agrees that Brown had his hands up. The two men did not see what happened when Brown and Wilson first crossed paths, but were about 50 feet away from Wilson when he began shooting.
