Ferguson police will not release officer’s name involved in Mike Brown shooting

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Ferguson police will not be releasing the name of the officer involved in the shooting death of 18-year-old Mike Brown.  They say Mike Brown’s family attorney would have to go to court to compel release of officer’s name.

The family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump, says they are looking at options to force release of officer name.

Ferguson police Chief Thomas Jackson says that after attacks on officers last night, it is not safe to release cop’s name.
