Video surveillance and radio calls reveal new details in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The records were obtained under Missouri’s Sunshine Law, and includes surveillance video of officer Darren Wilson leaving and returning to the Ferguson police station after the fatal shooting of Brown on Saturday August 9th, 2014.
Wilson left the station in a T-shirt about two hours after the shooting to go to the hospital.
He returned to the station two and a half hours later.
Wilson was working not far from where the incident would occur. He was responding to a sick baby call when a Ferguson police dispatcher reported a, “Stealing in progress.”
The dispatcher described the suspect as a “black male in a white T-shirt,” who had stolen a box of Swisher cigars. About four minutes later, more details were added: red Cardinals hat, a white T-shirt, yellow socks and khaki shorts, and was accompanied by another man.
Sources told the Post-Dispatch that Wilson told authorities that he told Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, 22, not to walk down the middle of the street. As they kept walking, Wilson then realized that Brown matched the description of the suspect in the stealing call.
Wilson called for backup and pursued Brown on foot.
Multiple shots were fired after Wilson claimed that Brown charged at him.
According to the Post-Dispatch, Wilson told authorities that he called, “Shot fired…send all cars” on his radio, but during the struggle with Brown, his radio had been jarred and the channel changed.
The Post-Dispatch was unable to locate any broadcast of the alleged call, which could possibly mean it was never transmitted.
A grand jury decision in the deadly shooting of Brown could come at any time.
