Back in 2014, A funeral and public memorial will be held on Monday morning for the Missouri teen shot by a Ferguson police officer, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Michael Brown, 18, was killed by Officer Darren Wilson on August 9. Brown was shot several times after Wilson ordered him to walk on the sidewalk instead of the street and he refused. Brown was unarmed, prompting widespread and continuing protests.

The new surveillance video used in the film, “Stranger Fruit,” suggests Brown first showed up at Ferguson Market and Liquor about 1 a.m., many hours before he and police faced off.

Filmmaker Jason Pollock argues that Brown first exchanged a small amount of marijuana with store clerks for two boxes of cigarillos in his early morning visit that day, according to a clip of the documentary included in a story by the New York Times.
