Edit: I changed the title to protest because other than police statements there has been no video or photos or witnesses claiming damage. If something gets broken it isn't only the police tweeting about it as is the case here.

I'll add to this as it is breaking.:

Some background on the shooting:

Another witness, Camille Johnson, told WPIX-TV Gray was fleeing the scene when he was killed.

“He was running for his life, telling the cops, ‘Stop,’” Johnson said. “They really are, seriously, walking around, shooting little kids.”

Another witness, who said she lives across the street from the scene of Gray’s death, said she saw him on the ground clutching his stomach while two men stood over him.

“He said, ‘Please don’t let me die,’” said the witness, who identified herself using only her first name, Vanessa. She added that one of the officers answered, “Stay down, or we’ll shoot you again.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
