The Latest: Michael Brown's father leads Ferguson march
FERGUSON (AP) - The latest in the events marking a year since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri (all times local):
A march to mark the anniversary of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown has begun in Ferguson, Missouri.
The march Sunday afternoon started at the site where Brown, who was black and unarmed, was fatally shot by Ferguson officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014. Brown's father, Michael Brown Sr., was leading the march, holding hands with others.
A grand jury and the U.S. Department of Justice declined to prosecute Wilson, who resigned in November, but the shooting touched off a national "Black Lives Matter" movement.
Michael Brown Sr. also led a parade involving several hundred people on Saturday. Brown said his family is still grieving, but he believes his son's legacy can be seen in the increased awareness of police shootings, and renewed skepticism when officers describe their side of events leading up to those shootings.
