BREAKING:Darren Wilson Is Identified As The Ferguson police Who Killed Mike Brown
(CNN) — Darren Wilson was just one of 53 officers in a small-town police department until his encounter with a unarmed teenager on a street in a St. Louis suburb.
Authorities, citing death threats, had refused to release Wilson’s name since he fatally shot Michael Brown last Saturday.
On Friday, Police Chief Thomas Jackson disclosed the identity of the man whose actions sparked sometimes violent protests and thrust the quiet community of Ferguson, Missouri, population 22,400, into the national spotlight.
