Ferguson officer says he never wanted to kill

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson says he "never wanted to take anybody's life" and feels sorry about the death of Michael Brown.

But Wilson says in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" that aired Wednesday that he followed his training when he shot the unarmed black teenager. During their confrontation, he says, "The only emotion I ever felt was fear and then it was survival and training."

Wilson says he only fired at Brown when Brown was facing him, and never when his back was turned. And he says he saw in the teenager a high level of aggression and anger that was "almost unfathomable."

Wilson says he understands Wilson's parents' anger because they are grieving their son. He says, "I'm sorry that their son lost his life."
