McSpadden was sitting in her car on a smoke break from her grocery store job on Aug. 9, 2014, when a friend told her someone had been shot near Canfield Apartments in Ferguson, Mo. After that her life crumbled learning her son, 18-year-old son Michael Brown, had been shot and killed by a police officer. McSpadden recounts what happened that fateful day two summers ago in her autobiography, "Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil," set to be released Tuesday, May 10, 2016, and co-written by Lyah Beth LeFlore.

    By JIM SALTER, Associated Press

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — Lezley McSpadden was taking a cigarette break from her grocery store job when a friend called to say someone had been shot in the street near Canfield Green Apartments in Ferguson.

    Within minutes, her cellphone rang again. It was a family member declaring the victim was McSpadden's 18-year-old son, Michael Brown. The shooter was a police officer.

    The next moments that sultry August day grew more and more intense as McSpadden's co-worker drove her to the scene in the St. Louis suburb where she quickly spotted clothing that matched her son's: a yellow sock on a leg the sheet hadn't covered and a red St. Louis Cardinals cap on the ground.

    McSpadden recounts what happened that fateful day two summers ago in her autobiography, "Tell the Truth & Shame the Devil," set to be released Tuesday and co-written by Lyah Beth LeFlore.


    The book chronicles McSpadden's life growing up in tough St. Louis neighborhoods, her experiences raising Brown, the devastation his shooting brought, and her push to honor his memory. Brown's death became a catalyst in the national Black Lives Matter movement.

    McSpadden, 36, said in an interview with The Associated Press that she wants readers to know "what a sweet person he was and how gentle he was and that he always tried to do the right thing."

    "I also want people to know that before this happened we were just regular people, ordinary people that sent their kids to school, went to work, and fried fish on Fridays and barbecued on Saturday," she said.

    Michael Brown and a friend were walking on Aug. 9, 2014, when Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson told them to get out of the street. Wilson realized Brown fit the description of a suspect in a store theft that occurred moments earlier. Heated words turned into a scuffle between Brown and Wilson, who was still inside his squad car.

    The two separated, but Wilson has said the 6-foot-5, nearly 300-pound Brown moved menacingly toward him once he was out of the police vehicle and that he shot him in self-defense.
