BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say they've made nearly 500 arrests since large-scale protests broke out after the death of Freddie Gray.

A police spokesman says 486 people have been arrested since April 23. The total includes arrests for violations of the citywide curfew that was lifted Sunday. He says 46 people were arrested the final night of the curfew.

He also says 113 officers had been injured while responding to riots and protests, although he isn't saying how serious the injuries were. With the curfew over, he says officers will continue to deploy to "areas of concern" and monitor protest activity.

Protests since Monday have been peaceful, and the criminal charges announced Friday against the officers involved in Gray's arrest have eased tensions in the city. Gray died of a severe injury that prosecutors say he suffered while riding in a police van.
