Baltimore protesters seek to 'shut down' the city
BALTIMORE (AP) - Protesters who have been showing their anger over the unexplained death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore are promising to hold their biggest march on Saturday, and they say they'll try to "shut down" the city.
Gray was arrested earlier this month, when police say he ran from them after making eye contact. Either during the arrest or while he was in a police van, he suffered a spinal injury, and died a week later.
The city's mayor is thanking protesters for being peaceful so far, and says the police commissioner has told her the investigation is moving as quickly as possible.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says she wants answers to why police policies were not followed.
