Rapper Common visits Ferguson


Rapper Common was in Ferguson, Missouri, visiting where 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed.

A Ferguson police officer shot and killed Brown over two weeks ago.

That shooting sparked days of protests, which sometimes included violence and looting.

Common asked for a moment of silence during an appearance on the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday.

Brown was buried on Monday.

There was a peaceful march the following night.

About 100 people attended.

Police arrested one man for carrying a concealed gun without a permit.
