Howard Students 'Surrender' in Solidarity With Michael Brown

Howard University students posed for a powerful image of themselves standing en masse with their hands in a "surrender" pose as a sign of solidarity with Michael Brown.

Howard University student body vice president Ikenna Ikeotuonye took the photo.

Brown was an 18-year-old, unarmed African American teen who was shot multiple times by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, on Saturday, according to police.

Howard University students who were on campus to help freshmen move into dorms posed for the picture. Iketuonye said that an alumna of the university had been shot in head during protests in Ferguson this week, apparently by a rubber bullet.

"It really hits close to home," Iketuonye told ABC News.
