Based upon the consensus so far....that the "fatal" shot was the one on the top of his head...indicates that Michael Brown had his head lowered.  That could also explain the exit wound on his chin.




.....that is, unless the head shot was fired when Brown was on the ground...which several early eyewitnesses claimed officer Wilson continued to fire.

Wish Officer Wilson would provide firsthand testimony.  His long silence bothers me.

Is he allowed to speak out? And can he do so without giving away his location? If people knew where he was, his life would be in danger.
The police do have his testimony - why wouldn't releasing that do?

According to something I read elsewhere (on Drudge, I believe), Wilson is now residing at a location outside of the state of Missouri. Good for him, he shouldn't set foot back into MO until absolutely required.

I also read on Drudge:
http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/08/breaking-report-po-darren-wilson-suffered-orbital-blowout-fracture-to-eye-socket-during-encounter-with-mike-brown/

Looks like Wilson had been seriously injured in his eye/face area. The fact that he had a broken bone in his eye socket almost certainly impaired his vision when he got out of the car and faced down the criminal Brown.

When Brown rushed him, it was probably all he could do to aim in spite of his visual injuries and fire. As Brown charged him, I believe he continued to fire until the body coming at him dropped. Hence, the last shot hitting the forehead.

The entire narrative of this incident is in flux. But at this point it seems that
- Wilson was attacked and seriously injured while still in his patrol vehicle
- Brown tried to get Wilson's gun, which went off once in the struggle
- Wilson, though injured, gets out and orders Brown to freeze
- Brown turns and charges at Wilson, who struggles against his injuries to fire and drop the suspect.

That sounds like a good summary to me. I think there is solid evidence for every point.
I think everyone wishes that he hadn't had to keep firing until Brown was dead, but I haven't seen that Wilson had any reasonable alternative. He didn't have a taser, and he didn't have a back-up.
