ST. LOUIS (AP) — A police interview with a key witness was not provided along with the thousands of pages of documents released after a grand jury decided to not indict a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

An Associated Press review of the records released by St. Louis County prosecutors confirms a report by KSDK-TV that a transcript of the two-hour interview by the FBI and a county police detective with Brown's friend Dorian Johnson was not included.

Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch's office didn't respond to requests for comment Monday.

McCullough took the unusual step of sharing information shown to the secret panel once the jury determined that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson should not stand for shooting Brown, who was unarmed.

He provided transcripts of 24 witness interviews.
