FERGUSON, Mo. (AP/KMOV.com) - More than two dozen people gathered to rebuild a makeshift memorial to a black 18-year-old Ferguson resident who was killed three years ago.

Residents and community activists met Tuesday night on the Ferguson street where Michael Brown Jr. was shot to death by then-officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, 2014.

The shooting sparked months of protests and a U.S. Department of Justice investigation that found racial bias in Ferguson's police and court system

The group set teddy bears, balloons and candles on the spot where Brown died. It is not far from a bronze plaque and dove installed in 2015 to replace the memorial.

Wilson wasn't charged and later resigned from the police force.
