ST. LOUIS (KMOX/AP) – The public is invited to discuss police relations in St. Louis city and county with the newly formed, governor-appointed Ferguson Commission.

The group’s second meeting is from 5:45 until 8:15 p.m. tonight at the Mullanphy-Botanical Garden Learning Center near the Missouri Botanical Garden on Shaw Avenue in St. Louis.

A spokeswoman tells KMOX the first hour and 45 minutes will be open for public comments, with a roundtable discussion to follow.

Former city police chief and current Missouri Public Safety director Dan Isom will be the moderator.

The Shaw neighborhood is where 18-year-old Vonderrit Myers Jr. was shot to death in October by an off-duty city police officer working private security for a homeowners’ association.

Sunday night, about 80 protesters demonstrated at the botanical garden during the holiday “Garden Glow.” Several paid admission to continue the protest inside the walled gardens.

The St. Louis Police Department announced Friday it had found no criminal wrongdoing in the shooting. City prosecutors will review the results of the police investigation and could still file charges.
