DURHAM, NC (AP) — Black law students at North Carolina Central University are holding a rally to protest the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old man by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri.

The school’s Black Law Students Association will hold the rally Monday on the front steps of the Turner Law Building on the NCCU campus. Speakers will include law professor Irving Joyner along with the head of Black Law Students Association and the president of the Student Bar Association.

A police officer shot and killed Michael Brown on Aug. 9. Demonstrations began after that, and authorities have arrested more than 160 people in the protest area. Another fatal police-involved shooting happened in St. Louis.

Protesters have chanted “hands up, don’t shoot” in Ferguson and other places across the country.
