ST. LOUIS (AP) — The father of Michael Brown is making a plea for peace, regardless of whether the grand jury decides to charge the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot his unarmed son.

Michael Brown Sr. has posted a video online saying that he, his family and the St. Louis region are still hurting. But, Brown says, “hurting others or destroying property is not the answer.”

Michael Brown was 18 when he was killed by Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson following an altercation on Aug. 9.

The grand jury decision is expected soon.

The video was a public service announcement produced by the group STL Forward, a website trying to unite the St. Louis region following the unrest that followed the shooting.
