Baltimore Protests After Freddie Gray Dies in Police Custody

Baltimore resident Caira Byrd, 21, was one of the handful of peaceful protesters outside the wake of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died April 19 from a spinal injury while he was in Baltimore police custody. She said Sunday’s protest was to show an alternative to the chaos that erupted during protests Saturday night.
