The family of an unarmed black teen who was fatally shot by a white police officer on a Ferguson, Mo., street filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against the city of Ferguson, former police chief Thomas Jackson and former officer Darren Wilson.
Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown, will not face criminal charges, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office announced Monday.
Violent protests erupted for hours after it was announced that the grand jury has chosen not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown.
Dr. Michael Baden has finished his testimony before the grand jury determining if charges should be filed against Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson.
The Ferguson police chief has identified the officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown Saturday afternoon.
The fire started around 6:45 a.m. CT Tuesday on the street where Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown, 18, on the afternoon of Aug. 9, said Capt. Jeremy Corcoran with the Ferguson Police Department.
Authorities on Tuesday delayed revealing the identity of the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teen three days ago, citing threats against the officer on social media.
