Funeral services held for Michael Brown draws thousands

Thousands of mourners gathered at a St. Louis church Monday to pay respects to Michael Brown, the 18-year-old teenager who was shot by a police officer two weeks ago in Ferguson, Missouri, sparking more than a week of violent protest.

“Michael has gone on to get his rest. We are required in his name to change the country,” Reverand Al Sharpton told mourners.

Brown’s family has asked for a “day of silence” from protesters as they mourn their loss and say goodbye.
