Scenes from the protests in Baltimore:


Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said on 29 April that she is working with Freddie Gray's family and with faith leaders to clear up "misinformation" that could case further unrests, the Baltimore Sun reported.

According to Hassan Murphy, a lawyer for the Gray family, the 25-year-old's family called for the meeting with the mayor on Wednesday. "We are grateful to her for being here and sharing with us what the plans are for the next several days to assure us all that this city is in great hands," Murphy said. "We stand by our mayor. The family stands by our mayor."

The family has called for peace, Murphy added, and wants the investigation "to be carried out in a way that gets us to the right result, and not necessarily one that is rushed."

The Baltimore Sun reported that Rawlings-Blake is worried that misinformation about what information will be made available on Friday will cause unrests. Baltimore Police announced that its findings will not be made public.

"I had a chance to really lay some things on the line with them, answer questions," the mayor said of her meeting with the family and religious leaders. "I thought it was very important for us to have a conversation about how we just don't seek justice but we make a pathway forward to have justice and peace."
