CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder has told Ferguson community leaders that he has assigned the federal government's "most experienced agents and prosecutors" to the investigation of a white police officer's fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old. As part of a trip that also included a stop in Ferguson, Holder met with more than 50 members of the Ferguson community at the Florissant campus of St. Louis Community College today.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A small group of protesters gathered today outside a suburban St. Louis building where a grand jury is expected to convene to consider possible charges against the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown. The roughly two dozen protesters chanted, prayed and held signs outside the St. Louis County Justice Center in Clayton, Missouri.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The mother and wife of a man killed by a Ferguson officer in 2011 have filed separate lawsuits with new allegations against a police department already under criticism for the death of Michael Brown.
