Dorian Johnson, the disappearing witness in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson Mo., is now a government employee.

The FBI has yet to release its  interview with Johnson, Brown’s friend who was with him at the time of his shooting and who reportedly told police that Brown had his hands up when he was shot.

Johnson was hired by the city of St. Louis, according to The St. Louis Post Dispatch

Jeff Rainford, Mayor Francis Slay’s chief of staff, has confirmed that Johnson was hired under a state grant through the city’s Agency on Training and Employment, or SLATE. Officials said he is doing work for the city. The job, listed as a temporary position, pays about $8.50 an hour. Rainford said Johnson met the low income eligibility requirements for the hiring. Johnson, 22, was with Brown at Ferguson Market and Liquor when Brown stole a box of Swisher Sweets cigarillos and shoved a store employee.
