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.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
