Chief releases name of officer who shot, killed Michael Brown
FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) — The officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson Saturday was identified Friday.
Darren Wilson is a six year veteran of the Ferguson Police Department. Police said he had no history of discipline. Wilson was treated for injuries after the incident.
The release of the officer’s name comes after false names were released on social media and by the hacker group Anonymous. Police previously said they would not release the officer’s name due to safety concerns. On Friday, however, Chief Jackson told News 4 he felt “it was time.”
According to the police reports, Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, were suspected of taking a box of cigars from a store in Ferguson that morning. Jackson said Wilson, along with other officers, was called to the area after a 911 call reporting a “strong-arm” robbery just before noon. He said a dispatcher gave a description of the robbery suspect, and Wilson, who had been assisting on another call, was sent to investigate. That strong arm robbery was caught on video. SOURCE
