NYC rally protesting Baltimore police custody death

(AP) -- More than a dozen people have been arrested at a rally in New York City to protest the death of Freddie Gray, a Baltimore man who was critically injured in police custody.



Several hundred protesters began gathering in Manhattan's Union Square Wednesday night, chanting "no justice, no peace" and "hands up, don't shoot" as police officers watched.



Later, a group of protesters spilled into the street disrupting traffic. The police moved in and began making arrests. Officers with batons had to push the crowd back onto the sidewalk.



As a protester being arrested was led to a police van, people shouted "the whole world is watching."



Another group of protesters marched north to Times Square where they held a "die in" by lying on the ground.
