U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is meeting with college students as part of his trip to Missouri stemming from a white police officer's fatal shooting of an unarmed black 18-year-old.

Holder made his first stop Wednesday at the Florissant campus of St. Louis Community College, a few miles from the suburb of Ferguson where Michael Brown was shot Aug. 9.

Student Kiyanda Welch says Holder talked to students about the unrest and their own interaction with police. Holder told the group "change is coming," Welch said.

Holder also was expected to meet with FBI agents and others involved in the independent federal investigation into Brown's death.

A group of protesters gathered outside a building where a grand jury could begin a hearing to determine whether to charge the officer.
