St. Louis • The funeral for 18-year-old Michael Brown is scheduled for Monday at a church in St. Louis.
The Austin A. Layne Mortuary, which is handling arrangements, says the funeral is set for 10 a.m. Monday at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church. Brown’s uncle, the Rev. Charles Ewing, will deliver the eulogy, and the Rev. Al Sharpton will also speak.
Brown will be buried at St. Peter’s Cemetery in St. Louis County.
Brown, who was black, was killed Aug. 9 by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The shooting sparked protests and more than a week of unrest in the predominantly black St. Louis suburb.
