Children on a school bus held their hands in the air and chanted "Hands up, don't shoot!" as their vehicle passed the spot where two St. Louis city police officers shot and killed a black man brandishing a knife Tuesday.

The gesture has gone viral after being used by protesters demonstrating against the police killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, three miles away in the suburb of Ferguson.
