ST. LOUIS, Mo. (USA Today)— More than 100 people rallied in support of Officer Darren Wilson Sunday evening in downtown St. Louis outside the KSDK-TV studio.

The rally was organized through social media and the Support Darren Wilson Facebook page, which was created on Saturday. In a little more than 24 hours the page accumulated more than 14,000 likes.

Those at the rally signed posters in support of Wilson, who was named by Ferguson Police as the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown Jr., 18, on Aug. 9. The shooting of the unarmed black teen has spurred a week of rioting and protests in the St. Louis suburb, which is under a second night of state-imposed curfew.

Some at the rally held signs urging, “Support our police! Pray for peace.”
