NEW YORK (AP) — There've been protests and rallies throughout the country over the death of Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man who mysteriously sustained a serious spine injury while in the custody of police.

In the Roxbury section of Boston, activists gathered in a park behind police headquarters. Protests in Baltimore were mostly peaceful last night.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The family of a man killed by a Milwaukee police officer plans to mark the one-year anniversary of his death with a march this afternoon.

Officer Christopher Manney said Hamilton grabbed his baton and attacked him, forcing him to open fire. He shot Hamilton 14 times. Hamilton's family has said he had schizophrenia but was not violent.
