BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Bowling Green is one of many communities around the country holding vigils in Michael Brown's memory.
Tonight, in Circus Square Park, more than 50 people gathered to pay their respects to the unarmed teen recently killed by police.
Community members and church leaders spoke and prayed in memory of the 18-year-old.
One preacher said tonight's event was about coming together and uniting as one.
"We need to realize it's not about one church or one denomination. It's about a collective community, a family, coming together and praying and having this vigil for our community and for our kids to let our community know that we are still one," Pastor Ford Huskey, said.
Community members traveled from more than an hour away to attend tonight's vigil.
