Virginia Beach, Va. - Several locals gathered in Virginia Beach for a peace rally to show support for the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri.

Close to a dozen people gathered at the intersection of Virginia Beach Blvd and Independence Blvd, holding signs in honor of the victim of last week's shooting in the St. Louis suburb.

An 18-year-old man, Michael Brown, was fatally shot in an altercation with a police officer in Ferguson last week.
