GREENVILLE, N.C. - Over 50 cities across the country took part in a national moment of silence Thursday night calling for calm and justice.

It all stems from the violent clashes between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

The latest stem of violence followed a teen shot to death by an officer.
