FERGUSON, Mo. — Relatives of a Missouri teenager who was fatally shot by a policeman say he had an eerie dream shortly before his death.
Pastor Charles Ewing said Tuesday that his nephew Michael Brown Jr. had confessed Jesus as his savior a couple of weeks before Saturday's shooting. Ewing said Brown then had a dream in which he saw a body covered by a sheet and told his family he believed the world would one day know his name.
Ewing said the public attention surrounding Brown's shooting has fulfilled that dream in a way his nephew couldn't have expected.
Relatives have described Brown as gentle despite his large size. Cousin Eric Davis said Brown quit his high school football team before playing a game because didn't want to hurt anyone.
