NEW YORK (AP) — Vigils are being held across the country for people organizers say died at the hands of police brutality.

People in more than 90 cities are observing Thursday's National Moment of Silence.

The events come in the wake of the shooting death of an 18-year-old man by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of a New York City man caused by a police officer's apparent chokehold.

Rallies are scheduled for the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, near where Michael Brown was shot, and several locations in New York.

People in cities from Detroit to Los Angeles are also scheduled to rally. They're being asked to wear a red ribbon, cloth or bandanna in a show of solidarity.
