Report: Darren Wilson has a clean conscience about Michael Brown shooting

Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson reportedly suggested to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos that he would shoot unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown again.

Wilson claimed Brown was violent throughout the encounter, reaching for the officer's gun and charging at him, according to Stephanopoulos's retelling of the interview. While Wilson said he felt sorry for Brown's family, he said he had a clean conscience about the encounter, was just doing his job, and wouldn't do anything differently.

The full interview will air tonight at 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time on ABC.
