WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder is promising the family of an unarmed black teenager shot by police in Missouri a full, independent civil rights investigation.

Holder's promise came Thursday in a telephone call with the family of 18-year-old Michael Brown. A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that Holder spoke to the Brown family while they visited the U.S. attorney's office in Missouri.

The official was not authorized to be identified by name and requested anonymity to discuss Holder's call.

Holder expressed his personal condolences for Brown's death, and told his family that the Justice Department was investigating.

Brown was shot by a police officer on Saturday in Ferguson, Missouri. The St. Louis suburb is 70 percent black but is patrolled by a nearly all-white police force.
