Michael Brown was visiting his grandmother when he was shot by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 9. He graduated from Normandy High School in St Louis in the spring this year, and was scheduled to start classes at a Missouri trade college.
The unarmed teenager was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, an autopsy has found. One of the bullets entered the top of Brown's skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury.
