BALTIMORE (CNS) — For four hours April 27, Freddie Gray Jr. was patiently and prayerfully memorialized.
That peace, however, was extremely fragile.
Gray, 25, died April 19, one week after being arrested on a weapons charge and sustaining a severe spinal cord injury in West Baltimore while in police custody. Thirty-six hours after a downtown protest over his death turned violent, a funeral was held for Gray a few miles to the northwest, at New Shiloh Baptist Church.
