COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis County prosecutor is set to speak next week at a Columbia law school about the grand jury process and the fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old by a Ferguson police officer.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (https://bit.ly/1GiBj7y ) reports Bob McCulloch is scheduled to speak next Tuesday at the University of Missouri School of Law. The student chapter of the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys organized his appearance.

A founder of the group’s student chapter says the event is a way to continue discussions about the events in Ferguson and race.

The August death of Michael Brown, who was black, prompted months of protests in the region. A grand jury declined to indict now-former officer Darren Wilson, who is white, in the shooting.
