The Latest: Last hearing held on Ferguson settlement
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Latest on a public hearing on a U.S. Department of Justice settlement calling for changes in Ferguson, the St. Louis suburb where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by police (all times local):
Dozens of St. Louis-area residents have testified in a public hearing hosted by a federal judge about whether Ferguson's settlement with the U.S. Justice Department can move forward.
U.S. District Catherine Perry heard Tuesday from those opposed and supportive of the settlement. Thirty-two people are scheduled to speak and 23 others submitted written comments.
It wasn't clear when Perry would issue a ruling.
Ferguson has been under scrutiny since Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, was fatally shot by a white Ferguson police officer in 2014.
Officer Darren Wilson was cleared of wrongdoing but a Justice Department investigation found racial prejudice in Ferguson's criminal justice system.
