Internet hacking group "Anonymous" released Thursday morning on Twitter what they claimed to be the alleged name of the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend.

The group then warned that they will continue to release the officer's photo, then his address, and finally "full documents" within hours if the St. Louis County Police Department does not respond.

However, the St. Louis County Police Department responded that the name the group posted is false. The department tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the name Anonymous released is not a Ferguson or a St. Louis County police officer.
