Whistle-blowing, chanting demonstrators briefly scuffled with police on Thursday during a protest over the death of a black man in Baltimore police custody.

A handful of the hundred of marchers demonstrating against the death of Freddie Gray, 25, threw bottles of water and debris at police as officers arrested a man during the noisy march from City Hall to the Western District police station where Gray was taken when he was arrested on April 12.

Police said during Thursday’s protest one man was arrested for assault, and another for destruction of property.

Gray died a week after he was arrested. A preliminary autopsy showed he died of a spinal cord injury.
