BREAKING: Ferguson PD Say Michael Brown Fit Description of Violent Robbery Suspect

The plot thickens. Ferguson police have released information that Michael Brown fits the description of the suspect in a violent robbery that occurred before he was shot. Check it out.

Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was fatally shot by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb, fit the description of a strong-arm robbery suspect that police were responding to the night he was shot, the Ferguson police chief said at a Friday press conference.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said that the robbery took place at a nearby convenient store. When police confronted Brown, they said a struggle ensued. Jackson went on to identify the police officer in the shooting as Darren Wilson, a six-year veteran with no disciplinary action on his record.

Protesters had been calling on police to be more transparent in the investigation. Police said they withheld the name because of the potential for threats on the officer and his family. The officer has been on administrative leave since the shooting.

Jackson said Wilson, along with other officers, were called to the area after a 911 call reporting a “strong-arm robbery” at a nearby convenience store. He didn’t immediately release details about the alleged robbery, saying more information would be released later.
