UPDATE: Bricks, rocks thrown at police in Baltimore, 7 officers hurt
BALTIMORE (AP) - There's rioting in Baltimore this evening.
Police say at least seven officers have been injured in a violent clash with a large group of youths. One officer is described as unresponsive, while others have broken bones after people threw bricks, rocks and other items at police.
Television images show a drug store being looted and police in riot gear forming a line nearby.
Police are urging parents to locate their children and bring them home. A lot of the youths clashing with police had backpacks and were wearing khaki pants, which are a part of many Baltimore public school uniforms.
The rioting started just hours after a funeral for Freddie Gray, who died of a mysterious spinal injury while he was in police custody.
