Baku-APA. Protestors rallied on Thursday at the police station of Baltimore, Maryland, and scuffled with the local police, when they were expressing their anger over the shooting of a black man, Freddie Grey, APA reports quoting Xinhua.


People rallied at the City Hall before marching to Baltimmore Police station, where they were confronted with the police.


The demonstrators shouted at the police, and even surrouded a police car for a moment.


The Baltimore Police Department said that two people were detained for disorderly conduct and destruction of property.


Freddie Gray, 25, died Sunday, a week after he was arrested on weapons charge.


According to a cellphone video which recorded the arrest, Gray was being pinned to the ground and then bundled into a police van. He was heard screaming on the video. At some point, he suffered a severe spinal cord injury.


The video has triggered off several days of protests in Baltimore and the city's Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she was "angry" and "frustrated" and promised a thorough investigation.


The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday launched a civil rights investigation into the case.


Police authorities said none of the six officers involved in the case, who have been suspended, described any use of force.


The police department's probe will be completed by May 1, and findings will be turned over to the city's chief prosecutor, who will determine whether to bring criminal charges in state court.
