Missouri governor 'concerned' about how Ferguson police have released information

(CNN) – Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is concerned about how Ferguson police disclosed information on the investigation into the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

Last Friday, Ferguson police released raw video from surveillance cameras which they say show Brown robbing a convenience store on the day he was killed. Many in the Ferguson community, including Brown's family, were outraged the information was released immediately following the naming of the officer who killed Brown, without specifying whether the robbery was related to the shooting.

Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson later told reporters the "robbery does not relate to the initial contact between the officer and Michael Brown."

"We were very concerned," about that release of information, Nixon said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" Monday.
