Police in Baltimore say that 34 people were arrested and six police officers received “minor injuries” in protests Saturday afternoon and evening over the death in custody of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man. Police said, otherwise the demonstrations had been “mostly peaceful.”

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and 24 Baltimore faith leaders issued a “Call for Peace” on Sunday, calling on citizens to honor the city’s “long tradition of peaceful and respectful demonstrations.”

Police said a number of shop fronts were vandalized and several police vehicles damaged.

Later today, mourners are expected to gather at a North Baltimore funeral home in a wake to remember Gray, who died April 19 — a week after his arrest. He led officers on a foot chase and reportedly sustained a fatal spinal cord injury at the time of his arrest or while he was being transported without a seat belt in a police van.

Anthony Batts, the city’s police commissioner, acknowledged on Friday that Gray did not receive timely medical attention for his spinal injury.
