Twitter user @TheePharoah may have live-tweeted his reaction to a Ferguson, Missouri police officer shooting and killing unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown on Saturday.
According to a series of tweets shared by Rolling Stone national affairs reporter Tim Dickinson, @TheePharoah sent out a chilling tweet after he apparently saw the police officer kill the teenager in broad daylight.
I JUST SAW SOMEONE DIE OMFG

The Twitter user then tweeted that he was on the verge of hyperventilating. Then he tweeted an observation that would seem to indicate Brown wasn’t a threat when he was shot dead.
The user said the man who was shot looked 18 or 19. Two days later, @TheePharoah tweeted to his followers that he was ok: “Thanks to everybody that checked on me, I love yall, Ima be safe. Yall be safe too.”
