    Missouri grand jury mulling Darren Wilson’s shooting of Michael Brown has 3 blacks, 9 whites

    Nine whites and three blacks will decide whether to charge a Missouri cop with killing 18-year-old Michael Brown.

    The breakdown of the St. Louis County grand jury weighing evidence against Officer Darren Wilson was released Friday by a state court judge.

    Wilson is white. Brown was black. And outrage over the unarmed teen’s killing two weeks ago fueled violent demonstrations and looting in Ferguson, Mo.

    A Youth, an Officer and 2 Paths to a Fatal Encounter

    Michael Brown let his 16th birthday come and go without bothering to apply for a driver’s license. There was no need, his family said. He preferred to walk.

    In Ferguson, where Mr. Brown was living with his grandmother, he walked nearly everywhere: on Canfield Drive, where his grandmother kept a small apartment, and several blocks away on the bustling commercial strip of West Florissant Avenue, a four-lane road full of hair salons and cheap restaurants that is the de facto downtown of the neighborhood.

    It was during one of Mr. Brown’s walks down Canfield Drive one week ago when he would have an unlikely collision. It involved Mr. Brown, a black teenager who seemed to have avoided most of the traps that dragged down many of his peers, and a white police officer, Darren Wilson, with an admirable record. When it was over, Mr. Brown was dead and Officer Wilson was facing an uncertain legal and professional future.

    Darren Wilson’s first job was on a troubled police force disbanded by authorities

    The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired. New officers were brought in to create a credible department from scratch.

    That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson.

    Ferguson prepares to say goodbye to Mike Brown

    For a community gripped by the death of Michael Brown, residents here are prepared to not only mourn for the loss of the 18-year-old, but also to say goodbye to him in his funeral Monday and vow to never forget what his sacrifice has meant.

    After more than two weeks of protests, political wrangling over investigations and swarms of media coverage from around the world, the Brown family will be laying their son to rest after he was shot dead in the middle of the street by a police officer on Aug. 9.

    Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church is bracing for thousands expected to join the services Monday morning, where scores of Brown’s extended family are set to join for the closed casket ceremony, along with several celebrities and high-profile attendees. Despite the expected spectacle, church members here expressed warmth toward the Brown family and conveyed a sense of honor that they would choose the church as a place to say goodbye to the teen.

    Residents: The raucous Ferguson seen on TV is not our Ferguson

    The QuikTrip that's now in shambles, its iconic red awning a nest of twisted metal, was once a favorite stop for residents here.

    The kids loved the slushies. The adults loved the doughnuts. And residents in the area say that before "the ruckus on West Florissant" -- in which looters and vandals parading as protesters mangled a primary corridor -- they could walk to QuikTrip at any hour with nary a concern for their safety.

    Michael Brown’s bright future, cut short

    Michael Brown never made it to his first day of college. He never wore his student ID badge through the doors of the tech school here, never saw the syllabus outlining his first class. He had dreams of mastering a trade, becoming an electrician to heat and cool spaces. Maybe one day he’d even open up his own business.

    Brown was just two days away from his first class at Vatterott College when he was shot dead by a police officer in the middle of the street. As the community roils over Brown’s death and his family mourns, students at the tech school Brown was supposed to attend are left wondering: Who could Mike Brown have been?

    A Different Look at Ferguson's Michael Brown Just Days Before His Death

    A different view of Michael Brown has emerged in a video that is starkly different from the images previously seen of the unarmed teenager who shot dead by police in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Brown, 18, is seen waiting to join the procession of graduates for Normandy High School in early August, just days before his controversial death on Aug. 9. He is wearing the traditional black cap and gown with a red sash around his neck and the tassel hanging jauntily off the back of his mortarboard.

    Trayvon Martin's Parents Take Part in Michael Brown Peace Rally

    Michael Brown's family pleaded with protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, to take the day off Monday as they bury the teenager killed by a police officer more than two weeks ago. "All I want is peace while my son is being laid to rest," Michael Brown Sr. said at an anti-violence rally called Peacefest. "Can you please, please take a day of silence so we can lay our son to rest?"

    Michael Brown's mom: "Nobody's child deserves to be treated like that"

    "My son didn't deserve it. Nobody's child deserves to be treated like that - nobody's," said Lesley McSpadden, the teen's mother.

    She and Michael Brown Sr. spent the day planning their son's funeral.

    "I'm still dreaming a little bit. But, not getting a phone call for the last few weeks, so it's kind of coming to a sense of I am not going to hear that voice again," said Brown Sr.

    Darren Wilson Was Low-Profile Officer With Unsettled Early Days

    The intense focus on Officer Wilson’s actions — old and new — marks a jarring change for a man who, over most of his 28 years, had left a muted, barely noticeable trail behind. While protesters have marched nightly, a grand jury has begun hearing evidence, and supporters of the officer have raised more than $350,000 for him. Officer Wilson himself has vanished from public view, leaving his ranch home where letters on red, white and blue stars hung from a door spell out “Welcome” in a town southwest of St. Louis; he is believed to be under police protection.

    Officer Wilson, who is divorced, was born in Texas but has spent most of his years in these suburbs that surround St. Louis, records show. Family members, friends, colleagues and a lawyer have mostly refused to speak publicly about him, yet those who do paint a portrait of a well-mannered, relatively soft-spoken, even bland person who seemed, if anything, to seek out a low profile — perhaps, some suggested, a reaction to a turbulent youth in which his mother was repeatedly divorced, convicted of financial crimes and died of natural causes before he finished high school in 2004.

    Pastors: Man claiming to be peacekeeper actually escalating things in Ferguson

    Many African American church leaders told News 4 a man pretending to spread messages of peace is actually escalating violence in Ferguson.

    Pastors are pointing the finger at Malik Shabazz, the former leader of the New Black Panther Party, and many church leaders want him to leave Ferguson.

    “I am upset with a certain group of them that are rebel rousers. We know them by name. Last night was the scariest night of my life,” said Pastor Mike Robinson.

    Ferguson residents afraid many won’t obey local police anymore

    Many citizens in Ferguson are fearful that residents in the area will not continue to obey local authorities once the Missouri Highway Patrol stops policing the area.

    “My daughter goes to school over here and she is just now starting school today,” said Ferguson resident Leslie Pettiford. “I’m nervous about it. I’m hoping we can get past this, but I’m very nervous about that.”

    Support grows for Darren Wilson

    As the funeral for Michael Brown draws closer, support continues to grow for the officer involved in his shooting.

    For the second day in a row a crowd has gathered to rally for Officer Darren Wilson. Supporters held signs showing their support, and people driving past the demonstration on Chippewa honked their horns to show support too.

    The group has been building followers. They feel Wilson's side has not been equally portrayed by the media.

    Michael Brown Spent Last Weeks Grappling With Problems and Promise

    It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first.

    “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.”

    And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high school, sent his father and stepmother a picture of the sky from his cellphone. “Now I believe,” he told them.

    In the weeks afterward, until his shooting death by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, on Aug. 9, they detected a change in him as he spoke seriously about religion and the Bible. He was grappling with life’s mysteries.

    Expert: Legal system often gives police benefit of the doubt

    Washington University law professor Peter Joy said grand juries tend to give police the benefit of the doubt.

    For example, a St. Ann police officer was suspended without pay for pointing a semi-automatic weapon at someone and threatening to kill them. Even though the moment was caught on video, the St. Louis County Prosecutor’s Office said a complaint has yet to be filed. It seems unlikely the officer in question will be charged with a crime.

    Michael Brown laid to rest today

    Justice was a recurring theme as thousands of mourners packed the mammoth Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on Monday for the funeral of Michael Brown, a black teen whose fatal shooting following a confrontation with a white police officer set off weeks of sometimes violent protests.

    The Rev. Al Sharpton, among the speakers, called for a "fair and impartial investigation" into the shooting.

    Friends and family say goodbye at Michael Brown’s funeral

    he family of Michael Brown may have been grieving, but they still counseled thousands of mourners Monday during his funeral.

    “He did not know how his name would be remembered,” said family member Eric Davis. “But we are here today remembering the name of Michael Brown.”

    It was once a common name. Now his is a household name for the teen who was black, unarmed, and 18 years old when a white Ferguson police officer shot him to death on August 9, 2014. Ferguson erupted into violent protests for days.

    “But not today,” said family member Ty Pruitt. “Today is for peace, peace and quiet.”

    Attorney: New audio reveals pause in gunfire when Michael Brown shot

    Could a newly released audio provide more clues on what led up to Michael Brown's shooting death?

    The FBI has questioned a man who says he recorded audio of gunfire at the time Brown was shot by Ferguson police on August 9, the man's attorney told CNN.

    In the recording, a quick series of shots can be heard, followed by a pause and then another quick succession of shots.

    Forensic audio expert Paul Ginsberg analyzed the recording and said he detected at least 10 gunshots -- a cluster of six, followed by four.

    For students and parents in Ferguson-Florissant, a chance to move forward

    It took a few days before Janice Bugett’s 6-year-old asked the question, and when she did, the little girl’s fear nearly crushed her mother.

    “Mommy, am I going to be killed when I go to school?” Jade Bugett asked.

    Jade, 6, a student at Cool Valley Elementary, lives a little more than 2 miles from where Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9. In the days that followed, she saw protesters as she looked out her car window and heard the shouts, “Hands up, don’t shoot!”

    Alleged audio of Michael Brown shooting released

    An audio recording that allegedly captures the gunshots that killed Michael Brown has been released to CNN.

    On the tape is the voice of a Ferguson man talking during a video chat. In the background you can hear what sounds like several gunshots, a pause and then several more gunshots. It’s important to point out that we have not been able to verify its authenticity.
