Seven Baltimore Police Officers Hurt In Clashes With Protesters

In the Mondawmin Mall neighborhood of Baltimore, some protesters faced off with police, Monday afternoon. Television images showed those demonstrators throwing rocks, bricks and bottles at a line of police officers in riot gear.

Capt. Eric Kowalczyk said seven officers had been hurt in the clashes. Some suffered broken bones and one of them, said Kowalcyk, is unresponsive.

"This is not OK," said Kowalcyzk. "We will find these people who are responsible and we will put them in jail."

Images from a television helicopter that some protesters set a trash can on fire and a helicopter swooped low over them to warn that the gathering had become unlawful.
