ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – St. Louis County Police said they have been waiting to speak to witness Dorian Johnson since he spoke to news media on Saturday. Johnson was with Michael Brown at the time of his shooting, but police said Johnson has not made himself available to police until Wednesday.

The family of Johnson said they have been a moral support system for him since Brown’s shooting on Saturday. The St. Louis Chapter of the NAACP said they have been helping to represent Johnson along with his lawyer Freeman Bosley, Jr.

"We've had difficulty reaching a lot of witnesses," said St. Louis County Prosecutor, Bob McCulloch. He added that witnesses have spoken out to the media making statements, but they do not contact the police.

NAACP President Aldophus Pruitt said he wanted to confirm that the FBI officers were present during Johnson’s statement to county police so that county police are held accountable.
