Baltimore police prepare to attack high school students

Baltimore, MD – High school students leaving school, protesting for Justice For Freddy Gray were met by Baltimore Police in riot gear on the afternoon of April 27. Police responded to the student protest near the Mondawin Mall on Baltimore's West side with well over 200 police officers in riot gear, who tear-gassed high school students when they didn't disperse. Police also shot rubber bullets into the crowd.

Students and youth met the riot police with rocks, throwing them from across the street as cops moved for arrests. However, most youth were successful at evading the police.
