(AP)-The family of Michael Brown, who was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, has released a statement condemning the shooting deaths of two New York City officers.

The statement released Saturday by the Parks & Crump law firm says Brown’s family rejects “any kind of violence directed toward members of law enforcement. It cannot be tolerated.”

It calls on citizens to “work together to bring peace to our communities.”

The brief statement concludes saying, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the officers’ families during this incredibly difficult time.”

A Missouri grand jury refused to indict the white officer who shot Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old.

Below is the full family statement:

“The family of Michael Brown condemns today’s senseless killing of two NYPD officers.

We reject any kind of violence directed toward members of law enforcement.  It cannot be tolerated. We must work together to bring peace to our communities.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the officers’ families during this incredibly difficult time.”
