The Missouri police officer involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager is a six-year veteran of the force.  Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson identified the officer as Darren Wilson at a news conference Friday.  Chief Jackson said the officer encountered 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend shortly after reports of a strong armed robbery in the area.  The briefing was held near a burned out Quick Trip store in the St. Louis suburb that’s been the scene of violent protests since the shooting.  Police previously declined to name of the officer involved because of safety concerns.
