The violence came after the funeral of Freddie Gray.

Gray died after suffering a severe spinal injury in police custody. The circumstances of his death remains unknown.

Baltimore police say there’s a “credible threat” against law enforcement there.

There were widespread protests in New York last year after Eric Garner died after being placed in a chokehold by police.

De Blasio condemned the violence in Maryland.
