CNN-Radio Dispatch Did Alert Officer Wilson To Theft Of Cigars
The fateful incident started with a dispatcher’s report of a “stealing in progress” at a market in Ferguson, according to the report. The dispatcher said the suspect — a black male in a white T-shirt — had stolen a box of cigars and was with another man.
A lawyer for Brown’s friend, Dorian Johnson, has said that the two were at the market that day.
At noon, Wilson radioed that he had just completed a separate incident involving a sick baby, and asked officers in the market incident if they needed help, according to the report.
Two minutes later, at 12:02 p.m., Wilson asked for “another car” and said he was “on Canfield with two,” according to the report, referring to a street near where the fatal encounter occurred.
