ST. LOUIS (AP) — Attorneys for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson say they are not responsible for recent leaks of information related to investigations into the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Wilson shot the unarmed 18-year-old on Aug. 9 in a case that has drawn widespread attention. A grand jury is expected to decide by mid-November whether Wilson will face criminal charges, and the Justice Department is investigating for possible civil rights violations.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch published a leaked copy of St. Louis County’s autopsy and toxicology report Wednesday. Other leaks to media have cited unnamed sources saying Wilson told investigators he felt threatened by Brown.
Wilson’s four attorneys said in an emailed statement that commentary about the case should only come in a legal venue, not through media, while the investigations continue.
