Freddie Gray death: Protesters damage cars, throw objects at police – CNN

Baltimore, Maryland (CNN)After a planned demonstration over the death of Freddie Gray ended at Baltimore City Hall on Saturday evening, many protesters continued to vent their anger after marching down to outside the city’s famed baseball stadium, where they threw objects at police and smashed car windows.

Hundreds of demonstrators confronted police at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in what was becoming an increasingly tense situation, according to a CNN crew that was among the protesters.

Some people threw what appeared to be water bottles and other objects at the cops, who wore helmets and stood behind metal barricades. Others broke the windows of patrol cars and other vehicles.

Fans who were arriving to watching the hometown Orioles play the Boston Red Sox were having trouble finding ways to the entrance gates.

Protesters yelled, “No justice, no peace” and “All night, all day; we’re gonna fight for Freddie Gray.”

Gray was a 25-year-old Baltimore man who suffered a spinal injury at some point after he was arrested by police on April 12. He died a week later.
