Nevada Rep. Steven Horsford will attend the funeral of Michael Brown in Ferguson on Monday, he announced on Twitter today.
The public funeral will be at 10 a.m. Monday at a St. Louis church. Brown's uncle, the Rev. Charles Ewing, will deliver the eulogy, and the Rev. Al Sharpton will also speak, according to an Associated Press report.
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.
