WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder is promising a thorough investigation into the fatal police shooting of a black 18-year-old.

Holder travels to Ferguson, Missouri today to meet with authorities taking part in a federal investigation into the death of Michael Brown.

Meanwhile, Holder is calling for "an end to the acts of violence in the streets."

He says Ferguson's citizens should "join with law enforcement in condemning the actions of looters, vandals and others seeking to inflame tensions."
