FERGUSON, MO (KPLR)-Activists are marking the one-year anniversary of the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager by a white Ferguson, MO, police officer with marches and peaceful protests across the St. Louis region. Michael Brown was shot and killed on August 9, 2014, by then police officer Darren Wilson. In November 2014, a grand jury did not indict him in the shooting.
The death led to weeks of sometimes-violent protests in the St. Louis region and across the country. The weekend anniversary events are not expected to become violent.
The Saturday morning march is from the scene of the shooting, the Canfield Green apartments, to Michael Brown's Alma mater of Normandy High School.
