FOX News reported:
Thousands of protesters took the streets of Baltimore Saturday in the largest Freddie Gray demonstration yet as hours of peaceful marching turned violent.
At least two people were hurt in the mayhem and at least a dozen were arrested. The problems occurred near Camden Yards, where the Baltimore Orioles were playing the Boston Red Sox. Fans were told to stay in the stadium because of public safety concerns. Prior to the game, demonstrators fought with fans at a bar.
Gray died April 19 after suffering a fatal spinal injury while in police custody. Authorities have not explained how or when Gray’s spine was injured, though police have said he should have received medical attention at the spot where he was arrested. Gray was handcuffed without a seatbelt inside a police transport vehicle, a violation of the department’s policy.
The chaotic scene Saturday night prompted the first public remarks from Freddie Gray’s twin sister, who pleaded for peace at a news conference alongside the mayor…
…A smaller “splinter group” of protesters looted a convenience store and threw tables and chairs through storefront windows, shattering the glass. One group smashed the window of a department store inside a downtown mall and, at one point, a protester tossed a flaming metal garbage can toward a line of police officers in riot gear as they tried to push back the crowd.
My report from Baltimore last night, including the only video of a big 9.15pm clash at the western district police HQ http://t.co/0iuP37Ehi4
