FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Five members of the clergy in St. Louis County, including Rabi Susan Talve, Pastor B.T. Rice and Bishop Jesse Battle met with Ferguson Administrators Monday morning to discuss ways to help the community heal in the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown. The unarmed teen was shot several times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson at Canfield Green Apartments August ninth. St. Louis County Police say Brown struggled over Wilson's gun. Witnesses say Brown had his hands up, as if surrendering, when he was killed. You may recall, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson came under fire for releasing video of Brown allegedly involved in a strong armed robbery at a convenience store at the same time he revealed Wilson's identity. When asked whether the clergy demanded Jackson be fired, the members declined to comment, but made it clear they want to see the police serve and protect all of the people.

Another meeting has been schedule for later this week.
