In the latest development in the fast-moving case of the police shooting of 18-year-old Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri last weekend, police have released raw surveillance video of the alleged “robbery” at a convenience store. In it, what appears to be Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson are in the store, at the counter and then an verbal altercation takes place.
Reports say that altercation was because Brown had cigars in his hand when Johnson picked up more. The store owner told Brown that he had to pay for the ones he already had first.
The store’s owners, through their attorneys, told Fox News in St. Louis that they did not turn over the surveillance video, they were issued a warrant and complied with police orders.
The store owners say neither they nor a store owner called the police – another customer in the store did.
Through their lawyers, the owners, who have owned the store for some years, said they hope to get back to serving the Ferguson community.
