Hundreds of family members and friends of 18 year old Michael Brown are gathered for his funeral today. Some mourners entered the church holding their hands up, in a symbolic gesture.  Brown's father asked for a day of peace and calm while his son is laid to rest. Days of violent protests followed the teen's shooting on August 9th.

President Obama sent three White House aides to the funeral. Missouri's governor is also paying his respects.

Brown was gunned down during a confrontation with Officer Darren Wilson. Police say Wilson opened fire after Brown scuffled with the officer, and charged at him. Witnesses say Brown was shot while surrendering. Autopsies show he was shot at least six times.
