(Undated) -- An online fundraiser for the Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown has raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars. The effort's GoFundMe site says more than five thousand people have contributed to the cause for officer Darren Wilson. The managers of the effort say the funds will go towards any financial needs Wilson's family may have, including legal fees. A grand jury is hearing evidence in the shooting case that led to days of violent protests in the St. Louis suburb.
