  FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) -- Below is a timeline of the shooting of Michael Brown on Saturday, Aug. 9, in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri. The times are taken from documents provided by the Ferguson Police Department, including dispatch logs and an incident report on a robbery at a convenience store.

   11:51 -- Ferguson police receive a call of a robbery in progress at the Ferguson Market convenience store.
 
   11:54 -- A different, unidentified officer arrives at the Ferguson Market and gets a physical description from an employee and customer of a suspect who took some cigars.
 
   11:57 -- A police dispatcher broadcasts a detailed description of the robbery suspect, saying that he was wearing a red (St. Louis) Cardinals ball cap and yellow socks and was walking with another man toward another convenience store called QuikTrip.
 
   12:00 -- Officer Wilson leaves the scene of the call about a sick child.
 
   12:01 -- Officer Wilson encounters Michael Brown walking on a street and the shooting follows. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson said Friday that Wilson did not know about the robbery at the convenience store when he encountered Brown.
