“We have the name of the shooter,” the Anonymous group memberÂ tweetedÂ under the Twitter nameÂ Operation Ferguson. “We just can’t verify. We need to either talk to witnesses or get a second leak source.“
“Do not release more info on this random citizen,” the Police Department tweeted. “We only release suspect information after the investigation is complete and charges have been issued.“
â€œSt. Louis County PD claimsÂ B***n W***m**Â doesn’t work for them or #Ferguson PD. We’ll see aboutÂ that,â€ TheAnonMessage Twitter account tweeted early Thursday.
On the other side, the Ferguson Police Department has declined releasing the name of the officer who actually shot Brown, citing safety concerns for the officer. This prompted Anonymous to vow in order to dismiss the police involved in the incident.
“The things that are happening in #Ferguson disgust me,” one Twitter user wrote.”[Redacted] you will be killed soon enough #RIPMikeBrown.“
