Ferguson Police Chief Identifies Officer Who Shot Michael Brown

(AllHipHop News) The first step in justice for 18 year old Michael Brown. Earlier today (August 15th) , Ferguson Police chief Tom Jackson identified the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown.

According to Jackson at a news conference held earlier today, six year veteran Darren Wilson was the cop who shot Brown last Saturday (August 9th). Wilson’s name was hidden for almost a week due to safety concerns and he is currently on paid administrative leave.

Jackson states that Wilson was responding to a strong-arm robbery at a Ferguson convenience store when he encountered Brown and Dorian Johnson. Jackson did not disclose if Brown was a suspect in the robbery. Jackson states that either Brown or Johnson attempted to grab Wilson’s gun before the officer shot Brown.

No word on if Wilson will face criminal charges.
