A Missouri grand jury looking into the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown will hear testimony on Thursday from a private pathologist hired by Brown's family to perform an autopsy, a representative for the family said on Wednesday.
Law enforcement officials from three agencies will be on hand to maintain order in and around St. Louis when a grand jury announces whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face charges in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Audio recordings obtained by Associated Press reveal that police officials requested a flight ban to keep news helicopters from covering the August protests in Ferguson, M.O. following the death of Michael Brown.
Protesters planned to kick off a weekend of demonstrations against police violence with a march on Friday afternoon to the St. Louis County courthouse after eight people were arrested in protests overnight
Brown's body lay at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in a black and gold casket, topped with the St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap he was wearing when he was killed on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Missouri
