INDIANAPOLIS - Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Indianapolis as part of a National Moment of Silence on Thursday evening.
Vigils were held across the country for people who died at the hands of police.
People in more than 90 cities observed Thursday's National Moment of Silence. The vigils come in the wake of the shooting death of an unarmed teen by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of a New York City man caused by a police officer's chokehold.
The power of social media and the Twitter hashtag #NMOS14 helped to get the nationwide event rolling.
"The fact that places all over the country are recognizing it and paying homage to it, means a whole lot to me and I’m sure it means a whole lot the family," Januarie York said.
The moment of silence took place at 7:20 p.m. Moments later, social media blew up with pictures posted from around the country showing support for Michael Brown, the teen killed in Ferguson.
Some who attended the moment of silence said the incident outside St. Louis reinforced a divide between police and the community.
In New York, about a thousand people marched peacefully in Manhattan's Union Square. In Nevada, about 40 people gathered outside the federal courthouse in Reno.
Rallies were also scheduled for the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, near where Michael Brown was shot, and in Detroit and Los Angeles. People were asked to wear a red ribbon, cloth or bandanna in a show of solidarity.
