Seven Baltimore police officers were injured in street violence today when people at a protest threw bricks, broke windows, looted businesses and burned cop cars after Gray's funeral. The 25 year old black man died of a spinal cord injury in police custody.
Clashes between police and protesters spread through other parts of Baltimore in what Reuters describes as "the most violent demonstrations since looting in Ferguson, Missouri, last year."
"It is disappointing just a few hours after putting Gray to rest," Reverend Jamal Bryant who spoke at the funeral told reporters. "This is not what the family asked for today of all days. This was a day of sacred closure."
Gray's family, pastors and city officials had pleaded for peaceful demonstrations. Schools, businesses and train stations closed in Baltimore, a city of 662,000 people 40 miles (64 km) from the nation's capital.
