Many had been parading through riot-scarred neighborhoods and chanting the victim`s name as security forces nervously looked on.
“Baltimore people, we did it!” shouted 18-year-old John Johnson. “Justice needs to be served!”
Cars streamed down West North Avenue in a cacophony of horns, as a man wearing a t-shirt that read “I Bleed Baltimore” thrust his fists into the air and cheered.
The community has been on edge since this week`s violent riots left several buildings in flames, stores looted, more than a dozen police officers injured and dozens of people arrested.
