FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) Hundreds are gathered in downtown St. Louis for a second day of organized rallies to protest Michael Brown's death and other fatal police shootings in the area and elsewhere.

The crowd appeared larger than the ones seen at Friday's protests. While the main the focus is on recent police shootings, marchers embraced other causes such as gay rights and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Police officers were stationed around downtown St. Louis in anticipation of a march that was scheduled to wind through city streets for several hours.

The four-day event called Ferguson October began Friday afternoon with a march outside the St. Louis county prosecutor's office.

Eighteen-year-old Michael Brown, who was black and unarmed, was shot and killed Aug. 9 by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who is white.
