The family of Mike Brown, an eighteen-year-old Ferguson teenager shot and killed by police on Saturday, August 9, has said that the young man recently took up a passion for music, with an interest in sound engineering and plans to study at Vatterott College next week. According to his grandmother, Desuirea Harris, "All he wanted to do is make music."
Ray Downs Mourners gather for a candlelight vigil in Brown's honor.
"Everyday he made one or two more records," she explains. "He rapped about life in general -- about what he went through and people went through. Just life."
