Latest updates on Baltimore unrest and Freddie Gray case
Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested April 12 following a foot pursuit by officers in the Gilmor Homes area of West Baltimore, and he suffered a severe spinal injury while in police custody. His death a week later sparked protests over police brutality and unrest in the city — including looting and rioting — that drew international attention to the case. On April 27, riots erupted throughout the city; all told, 235 people were arrested, 20 police officers were injured, hundreds of businesses were damaged and 144 vehicles and 15 buildings were set on fire during the chaos that Monday evening. A citywide curfew was enacted and a state of emergency declared.
