Shortly after Friday’s press conference, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson released a surveillance video of a convenience store robbery perpetrated by the teen who was shot by officer Darren Wilson.
The robbery took place approximately ten minutes before the fatal shooting, according to reports.
An attorney for Dorian Johnson, the man who was with Michael Brown when he was shot, confirmed that the suspects in the video were Brown and Johnson.
Jackson announced, in a second press conference, that Wilson, the officer who shot Brown, was not responding to the robbery, and didn’t even know Brown was a suspect.
A police report was released to the public with information and photos on the incident:
