According to reports released to the Post Dispatch, Darren Wilson knew about the strong-arm robbery prior to his confrontation with Michael Brown.  This is contrary to what has been reported in both social and main-stream media.  According to the Post Dispatch analysis, the event surrounding the altercation, and subsequent shooting of Michael Brown took less than 90 seconds.

Sources have told the Post-Dispatch that Wilson has told authorities that before the radio call he had stopped to tell Brown and his friend, Dorian Johnson, 22, to quit walking down the middle of the street. They kept walking, and he then realized that Brown matched the description of the suspect in the stealing call. (Bold emphasis mine)
