Ferguson Police Are Now Saying The Cop Who Shot Michael Brown Didn't Know...

The Ferguson, Missouri police officer who shot an unarmed black teenager Saturday apparently did not know that he was a suspect in a convenience store robbery that happened just minutes earlier, police said in a press conference Friday.

Ferguson police chief Thomas Jackson said the department released surveillance video and a police report from the robbery earlier today because media had requested the footage and documents.

"The initial contact between the officer and Mr. Brown was not related to the robbery," Jackson said at the news conference this afternoon.

Jackson also said that he wasn't sure whether officer Darren Wilson was aware of the robbery at all when he stopped Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when the alleged robbery took place.
