Slain US teen was robbery suspect, police say

Police stand watch as demonstrators protest the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown on August 13, 2014 in Ferguson, MissouriThe unarmed black teenager whose shooting death by a white police officer unleashed riots in a Missouri town was a suspect in a robbery just minutes before he was killed, police said. The allegation reignited fresh anger and frustration in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, with the 18-year-old student’s family accusing police of attempting to demean his character amid an ongoing investigation. FBI agents, working with attorneys from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and US Attorney’s Office, meanwhile interviewed witnesses on the scene at the time of the shooting, officials said on Friday. Incident reports from the Ferguson Police Department linked Michael Brown to the theft of a $49 box of cigars from a convenience store, shortly before he was fatally shot by police in broad daylight on a nearby street on August 9.
