FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - A group says it has enough signatures to prompt a recall election of Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III.

A member of Ground Level Support told the City Council on Tuesday night that it tried that day to submit the petition but was told the city clerk wasn't in the building. The group will try again Wednesday to hand in the petition with more than 1,800 signatures.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Knowles was criticized for statements he made following the August shooting death of black 18-year-old Michael Brown by a white police officer, including a denial that the community was racially divided.

He listened to several supporters as well as detractors during the meeting and thanked everyone for their comments afterward.
