Video: Protestors Clash With Police as Baltimore Demonstrations Turn Violent

In the hours since Freddie Gray’s funeral on Monday, lootings and fires have broken out in Baltimore.

Update, Monday, April 27, 7:35 pm ET: Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has declared a “state of emergency” in Baltimore.

Clashes between Baltimore Police and protesters turned violent Monday afternoon following the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black Baltimore resident who died in police custody earlier this month. Baltimore Police say that at least seven officers were wounded when groups of people, mostly young men, began throwing bricks and other objects at officers. Officers have responded with tear gas and pepper balls. Drug stores and other businesses, primarily in Northwest Baltimore, have been looted, and several cars have been set on fire.
