St. Louis County prosecutor to speak at MU law school
COLUMBIA (AP) - The St. Louis County prosecutor is set to speak next week at the University of Missouri about the grand jury process and the fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old by a Ferguson police officer.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Bob McCulloch is scheduled to speak next Tuesday at the MU School of Law. The student chapter of the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys organized his appearance.
A founder of the group's student chapter says the event is a way to continue discussions about the events in Ferguson and race.
The August death of Michael Brown, who was black, prompted months of protests in the region. A grand jury declined to indict now-former officer Darren Wilson, who is white, in the shooting.
