Ferguson, Missouri, police on Friday released the security camera footage they say shows Michael Brown in a physical confrontation with a convenience store clerk minutes before Brown was fatally shot by a police officer.
In the footage, dated Aug. 9, a man wearing a white T-shirt, shorts and a baseball cap appears to reach behind the counter and grab a box, then shove a shorter man who came from behind the counter and tried to block him from leaving the store. Police said Brown, 18, stole a box of cigars in a “strong-arm” robbery.
