The Huffington Post followed the Times' example, writing that the video released by a documentary filmmaker "disproves the police narrative of the events that led to the death of Michael Brown". The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that multiple gunshots were fired across the street from the store, but no one was injured. This video was known to exist by police but it was never released.

The documentary and the surveillance footage sparked a March 12 protest at Ferguson Market.

But he said St. Louis County Police primarily focused on investigating the shooting, with Ferguson police handling the incident at the store. "The entire video shows that the clerks threw the pot back to Michael Brown". Instead, Mr. Pollock believes that the new video shows Mr. He starts to leave the store, then turns around and hands back the boxes to the store cashier. But before leaving the store, Brown gave the cigarillos back to the store clerks, who placed them behind the counter, according to the clip. Brown left the cigarillos behind the counter for safekeeping...

However, family members have stated it sheds new light on the relationship between Brown and the store. What happened between Wilson and Brown continues to remain a mystery and a point of contention, which sparked the now-infamous Ferguson protests and made the St. Louis suburb synonymous with police brutality.

It's unclear from the footage what's contained in the small package that Brown handed to store clerks, but the footage appears to show clerks holding the contents to their noses to smell.

Wilson would find Brown and a friend walking in the middle of a nearby street minutes later. Wilson was acquitted of all wrongdoing in Brown's case. Wilson's gun went off during the initial altercation, and a bullet hit Brown's hand, causing him to flee. Around noon, Brown returns to the store and calmly waits to be served by a different clerk. Wilson described Brown as having an angry and intense expression, the Monitor previously reported.

Angry protests and a debate about how U.S. police treat minorities followed Brown's death in 2014.

The video, obtained by filmmaker Jason Pollock, shows Brown entering Ferguson Market and Liquor 11 hours before his death. The New York Times, for instance, wrote an article titled "New Ferguson Video Adds Wrinkle to Michael Brown Case", burying the alleged drug deal in its article as a passing reference.

Attorney Jay Kanzler told CNN the store would release a full surveillance video on Monday that would show the documentary used an "edited version of events".

"There was no transaction", Kanzler told The New York Times. "They love the people of Ferguson and truly want to get on with their lives".
