Police: Man arrested near scene of recent riots

BALTIMORE (AP) – Baltimore police say they have arrested a man on a handgun charge near the scene of recent rioting over the death of a man fatally injured in officers’ custody.

A Baltimore police officer who briefed reporters at the scene said police did not fire their weapons and that no one was wounded.

Live television coverage and photos tweeted from the scene showed medics putting a man in an ambulance and a large police presence, with officers lining up to apparently block one street. The officer said the man did not want to be treated in the ambulance but was taken to a hospital anyway.

The activity is taking place in the Penn North neighborhood, where police first spotted Freddie Gray on April 12. He was arrested and fatally injured in police custody. Six officers were charged Friday in Gray’s death.
