The Ferguson, Missouri police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown is not a "cold-blooded murderer," has no temper and is "struggling" with what's happened since he pulled the trigger six times, says his high school friend.

Since his name was released last week, 28-year-old Darren Wilson has gone into hiding. Police said the shooting occurred after he and Brown wrestled for Wilson's gun. However, witnesses say that Brown was shot while his hands were in the air.

A grand jury is expected to begin hearing evidence in the case today (Wednesday) and Wilson will be given the opportunity to testify.

A friend who has known Wilson since high school, who asked to remain anonymous, said, "Darren’s a good person and people have immediately labeled him as a cold-blooded murderer and that’s not the type of person he is. I wasn’t there, I don’t know exactly what happened, but I do know Darren is a good man and he cares about other people a lot."
