ST. LOUIS (AP) — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is meeting with the parents of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old fatally shot by a police officer.
Holder was meeting with them Wednesday evening in the U.S. attorney's office in downtown St. Louis. He also planned to meet with Missouri's congressional delegation.
The attorney general flew to Missouri Wednesday morning and made several visits around the area, including to a community college and a restaurant in Ferguson near where Brown was shot on Aug. 9.
Holder has pledged experience federal officials will independently investigate whether there were any civil rights violations connected to Brown's death. Brown was black and the officer who shot him is white.
