BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham Mayor William Bell's office says he will head to Ferguson, Missouri on Friday.

Mayor Bell is the current head of the African American Mayors Association, which has asked him to consider going to the town outside St. Louis to help diffuse the tense situation there.

The violence has calmed down some in the area and national guard troops are pulling out.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has promised a quick and thorough investigation into the death of unarmed teenager Mike Brown.
