Baltimore Riot Injures 7 Officers On Day Of Freddie Gray Funeral

Baltimore protesters hurled rocks and bricks at police officers in riot gear Monday, injuring seven, on the day of the funeral for Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who died after being injured in police custody. The demonstrators also smashed police cars and looted stores.

"We will find the people that are responsible, and we will put them in jail," said Baltimore police Capt. Eric Kowalczyk. "They have broken bones, one of them is unresponsive. This is not okay."

Kowalczyk said that police would respond to bring the riots under control. "You're gonna see tear gas, you're gonna see pepper balls," he said.

Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury after police took him into custody this month for running away. Officers placed him in the back of a police van, but didn't buckle him in, violating department policy. Police said Gray should have been treated for his medical needs at the scene of his arrest, but wasn't.
