The Ferguson police officer who has gone into hiding after being named as the cop who shot Michael Brown is not a “cold-blood murderer” as depicted by his harshest critics, but a man without a temper who is “struggling” with the aftermath of the shooting, his friend told ABC News.

Police Officer Darren Wilson, 28, has been on leave since the Aug. 9 shooting of the unarmed teenager. His boss, Police Chief Tom Jackson, initially refused to release Wilson’s name out of fears for his safety, but finally identified him late last week.

Protesters insist that Wilson be arrested for shooting Brown at least six times. Police have said the shooting erupted after Brown, 18, wrestled with Wilson for his gun while witnesses have said Brown was shot while his hands were in the air.

The St. Louis County prosecutor said today that a grand jury is expected to begin hearing evidence Wednesday in the Ferguson shooting. Wilson will be offered an opportunity to testify before the grand jury, said Edward Magee, spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.
