Rioters in northwest Baltimore looted stores and pelted riot-gear-clad police with rocks on Monday, hours after Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who has become the nation’s latest symbol of police brutality, was laid to rest amid emotional calls for justice and peace. At least seven officers were injured and one was “unresponsive,” Capt. J. Eric Kowalczyk of the Baltimore police told reporters. In response to the violence, Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency in Baltimore and activated the National Guard. State police were sent to the scene, and officers from surrounding counties were also brought in to respond/New York Times. More here.
