FERGUSON, Missouri (PIX11) -- Text messages from officer Darren Wilson have been released by his friend, Jake Shepard, according to the Daily MailOnline.
Wilson, the officer who pulled the trigger in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, has sent multiple texts since the incident, according to Shepard.
One of the texts Wilson sent Shepard reads, "The support is really keeping me going during this stressful time. Just stay safe. I appreciate all you have done." Later a text was received reading, "I can't go out."
The website says Shepard "showed the messages to MailOnline because he wanted the public to get a more accurate picture of the friend he described as always having 'pure intentions.'"
