As the public demands answers following Michael Brown's death at the hands of police in Ferguson, Mo., the Ferguson Police Department addressed the matter today. The unarmed 18-year-old was shot and killed by an officer on Saturday afternoon.

According to USA Today, the Ferguson Police Department acknowledged that "the community's cries for justice," but asked that all vigils be held peacefully and during the daytime: 

We ask that any groups wishing to assemble in prayer or in protest do so only during daylight hours in an organized and respectful manner. We further ask all those wishing to demonstrate or assemble to disperse well before the evening hours to ensure the safety of the participants and the safety of our community.

This comes after the FBI took over the investigation into Brown's death, and Ferguson police were involved in another shooting this morning
