Missouri teen shot by police was two days away from starting college: Rest In Peace Michael Brown!

“(CNN) — Monday was supposed to be Michael Brown’s first day at technical college. Instead, his parents were planning his funeral.
The 18-year-old was shot by a police officer in a St. Louis suburb on Saturday, sparking a federal civil rights inquiry, local protests and national debate.

One side says the African-American teenager was surrendering, his hands in the air to show he was unarmed, when the officer opened fire. Authorities counter that Brown had attacked the officer in his car and tried to take his gun.

His parents and their lawyer say they don’t believe the police account of what happened. They describe Brown as someone who steered clear of violence.

“He was funny, silly. He would make you laugh. Any problems that were going on or any situation, there wasn’t nothing he couldn’t solve. He’d bring people back together,” his father, Michael Brown Sr., told reporters.
Family members nicknamed him the “gentle giant.”

For teachers, he was “a student who loomed large and didn’t cause trouble,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Friends and family said the teenager was ecstatic about starting classes at Vatterott College.” ”

Note from us,
Hearbreaking story, we send our prayers to his family.
Rest In Peace Michael Brown.
