Funeral Monday For Michael Brown In Ferguson

Funeral Monday For Michael Brown In Ferguson

By Nancy Simpson. CREATED Aug 19, 2014

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Funeral services for the black 18-year-old killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri are planned for Monday.
 
Benjamin Crump, an attorney for the family of Michael Brown, says the exact time and location for the memorial has not been finalized.
 
The shooting of the unarmed Brown by officer Darren Wilson has stoked more than a week of unrest in the city. Police have used tear gas, sound projectors and other means to turn back demonstrators, some of whom have lobbed Molotov cocktails and bottles at officers.
 
The volatile scenes prompted Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to deploy the National Guard in an effort control the unrest.
