Hundreds converge on Ferguson to march for Michael Brown, three weeks after the unarmed black teenager was shot by a white police officer

  • Led by Brown’s parents Saturday’s demonstrators peacefully made their way through the St. Louis suburb to a makeshift memorial
  • The memorial marks the spot where Brown was shot on August 9 by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson
  • Brown’s parents — mother Lesley McSpadden and father Michael Brown Sr. — encircled the memorial
  • Hours later, hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the suburban police department and fire station, blocking the road
  • Police have said the shooting happened after a struggle between Brown and Wilson in Wilson’s patrol vehicle, though authorities have said little else
  • The community want to keep Brown’s case ‘in the forefront of America’
  • A St. Louis County grand jury is considering evidence in the case and federal investigators are deciding if Brown’s civil rights were violated
