Anonymous releases audio from the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager shot in Ferguson, Missouri.

On Wednesday, Aug. 13, the NY Daily News reports international hacktivist collective known as Anonymous released emergency communications that reveal an urgent call for help with an 'officer involved shooting' in Ferguson.

Michael Brown was shot dead in the incident. Witnesses report police fired upon Brown even though the young man was unarmed, with his hands in the air.

In light of the immense public outrage, the police chief of Ferguson, says he is withholding the name of the officer who shot Brown out of concern for the safety of the officer and his family. However, Anonymous recently announced on Twitter that it was now "making a final confirmation on the name of Mike Brown's murderer," adding: "It will be released the moment we receive it."

Anonymous released the information as part of Operation Ferguson (#OpFeguson). The following text is attached to the video:

We are Anonymous.

These files compiled in this video contains audio of St. Louis police dispatch from the date of August 9th 2014, the day Mike Brown was murdered by a Ferguson PD officer. We have released these tapes to the public so as they are able to get a sense of the atmosphere the moments before and the hours after Mike Brown was shot.

These raw audio files have been compiled and long quiet moments have been cut down. Time stamps are available within the video.

UPI reports Anonymous took over city of Ferguson websites on Sunday night after warning authorities that their treatment of protesters could have consequences.

The group warned the Ferguson Police Department that they were being watched and that abuse or harassment of protesters would result in Anonymous taking "every web based asset of your departments and governments offline."

Operation Ferguson (@OpFerguson) sent the following message via Twitter earlier today, Wednesday, Aug. 13:

We hacked your email system, took down your website, released an audio file of police dispatch. And most important, we focused attention on this murder. Be ready to expect more, because we are just getting started.
