Michael Brown's blood was found on the gun and interior door panel of Officer Darren Wilson's police vehicle after two shots went off during a scuffle that left the 18-year-old dead, FBI forensic tests have shown.

According to The Washington Post, the story corroborates at least part of Wilson's recounting of the Aug. 9 incident that has sparked months of protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Brown was shot 6 times during the struggle, sustaining an arm wound inside the vehicle, and 5 more wounds outside of the vehicle.

Wilson's testimony and the testimony of Brown's friend and other bystanders conflict, however the newly revealed evidence will make it difficult for the Justice Department to prosecute Wilson on federal charges for an alleged violation of Brown’s civil rights. It will also make it more difficult for a grand jury to indict Wilson on state charges.

It remains unclear what happened once the scuffle moved outside of the police vehicle, but a previously revealed autopsy showed that Brown appeared to have been shot while facing the officer.

"The officer’s going to say whatever he’s going to say to justify killing an unarmed kid," Benjamin L. Crump, a lawyer for Brown’s family, told The New York Times. "Right now, they have this secret proceeding where nobody knows what’s happening and nobody knows what’s going on. No matter what happened in the car, Michael Brown ran away from him."

Wilson has not spoken publicly since the incident, but did testify privately to a grand jury last month.
