Officer Darren Wilson suffered severe injuries to his face, including a fractured eye socket, during an altercation that ended in the shooting death of Michael Brown on August 9, according to sources close to the Ferguson, Mo. police department.

There is also “solid proof” that Brown tried to gain control of Wilson’s weapon, a source told Fox News.

Police sources had already claimed that Wilson’s face was swollen following the incident, but Fox’s report — which backs another earlier report from the blog Gateway Pundit — suggests that the injuries were quite severe.
