Two men were arrested Tuesday night as more than 100 demonstrators occupied the street in front of Miami's criminal courthouse.

It was one of several protests that have erupted across the country over the refusal of a Missouri grand jury to indict police officer Darren Wilson who killed teenager Michael Brown in the town of Ferguson this summer.

South Floridians gathered in front of the Torch of Friendship memorial in downtown Miami on Sunday to show support for the residents of Ferguson, Mo., against the killing of an unarmed black teen.

The rally was held in honor of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot by officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. The killing has sparked protests throughout the county. Funeral services for Brown start Monday.
