That was brave face basis try to push it over. Right now it is a group of flawless individuals. Had no regard for the safety of the people leaving their community. For the safety of our police officers. Who were there and sore at the people who live and work in that area to do so safely. Reviewing the situation right now you can hear officers responding out there behind me right now our focus is made you so that you with a Internet community are saying. And our officers or state. It's. You can see here days. C. It's too short wave of. There was a very loud and and I couldn't see one or was it could have been a brick on one of the plastic shields. There's a police officer heroes tear gas pepper sprayed physically sought to right here choking and gagging. I could feel it in my own throat right now as well. Then there it is is starting to burn my throat just a little bit on the back away. All these police officers they got pepper spray themselves and they're struggling with a I can feel a little burned in the throat as well. They now lit it on fire lots of smoke coming out that Baltimore fire department has just arrived. They're ringed by I would say a 150. Police officers who works fully it right year as they try to protect the firemen and they try to put this fire out. We've really does have to be pointed out that for. Maybe 2000 of these protesters. Ready great period miniscule amount alternate construction output on. These children don't realize how dangerous distinctive beat and we gonna wound up having more victims. As opposed to solutions to Fam it was very clear that this was the day. I'll secret cloture I in the funeral so far the come out of the Barrick gold and walked into this. It's absolutely inexcusable I'm asking every young person to go back home. Tomorrow night will have a community leader and how far to really re calibrate hobby just peace is the call in the order of the day. Disney is being called peaceful this is not a right way to do it I've come on a mob got benefit costs of trying to tell Robert and this is not known right way to do this we actually comes out says is meant what I can't it was an act called the. Even as I stand here I can still smell. The burned in the air you can almost taste it it is unfortunate. And it's something that I know that myself and many other people many uses a significant number of them African Americans like myself just don't understand. You know why burn down your own neighborhood. A line of police officers in riot gears and a standoff with protesters hurling taunts and obscenities. Standing between the two lines is a role of college age women there arms linked. Win here in solidarity trying to protect our city protect our people. That's our reality and make sure nothing crazy happens. At least for now the strategy is working words are the only things thrown so far today. There is some music being played out with good drums. So it's a totally different atmosphere that I witnessed yesterday when on this very street corner you really couldn't stand here. But more than a few minutes without fear and beat it with a bottle Iraq. Peaceful protesters returned to the streets here in Baltimore and across the country trying to shift focus away from riots. And back on Freddie grade Baltimore police investigators say they've exhausted every lead and now it's up to prosecutors to decide. If Freddie gray was killed at the hands of police or did he just die while in their custody. Johnston out for the State's attorney Marilyn mows being in Baltimore connection with a fatal injury that. Led to the death Freddie grant it. Landing is about comprehensive. Sorrow an independent investigation. Coupled with the medical Examiner's determination. That mr. grace death was a homicide. Which we received today. As led us to believe that we have probable custom filed criminal charges. Community have been protesting have been demanding. They were skeptical they were gonna get it and when they did get it they erupted in cheers so I think that. There there is a bit of a surprise here in Baltimore that police officers were charged. Under a bright blue sky as many as 101000 people are expected to marched through downtown here in Baltimore. Making their way to City Hall for a rally that's expected to last several hours this afternoon. Planned several days ago the tone has changed somewhat and so is the title it's being called a victory rally after charges were brought against six police officers in the death of Freddy gray.

It was a day after Thanksgiving Black Friday many people were off work when a man walked into a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs and began firing. Council and possible explosive devices at first police didn't know who were one they were battling. Situation unfolding right now in Colorado Springs a possible active shooter situation according to police radios a gunman has been shooting at police near Planned Parenthood office it sounds like from police radio traffic that Steele there are shots being fired they heard shots a couple of moments ago. You just heard gunshots. Hope for I think until the end and then I don't want to come out. I heard undeniably one can't help but apparently it. The ball is simply say you know why me. Grainy you'd say there's and they are an epic. Heavily armed I'm guessing swat arriving on scene now they've got their helmets on they have their ballistic have vests on we heard a police officer yelling. I've been shot I've been shot. This just get my blood pumping right now at the credit because I've been in the situation or there's a certain. Waist call over the radio went something like this happens when somebody's been shot. Right now. Those swat team members are getting in the back als the bearcats. Of the armored vehicle lease some of them I just got in with their equipment they have heavy shields they have their helmets. They closed the door and they are taking off right now. Right now yet gun and the shooter he is that he's still active. He's still able are what are the down are hostages weather problems that are trying to make entry. We are still working through this situation. We do not have. The shooter at this point. But we do have all of our resource is brought to bear. And we are actively working through the different businesses and buildings to make sure that we. Provide. Medical treatment for the individuals that are injured and as well as try to locate that shooter in this situation. We are one gentleman who said that. You didn't fit his sister had a an appointment today at the Planned Parenthood office and he saw on FaceBook. That there was something happening and immediately called her. When he did that she said she told him that she was hiding under a table. He said that he could hear gunshots in the background while you're on. With the sister and a cup points are. O line disconnected and that he has not tried coddling our back because he said he does not want to put her life in jeopardy and. As I speak in the snow is coming down in Colorado Springs. They are using what they called the bearcats. And armored vehicle that today now all I'm not to give away any tactics here about a number of swat team members are getting into they've been using it day in almost appears like a shuttle. Not coming and picking up swat team members and taking them into the scene. Responding officers exchanged gunfire with the shooter police on scene just came running out asking if any of the swat team members use a sniper are any of you a sniper is what they were sank we just got new information from police on scene they say they are still encountering gunfire as they search for the gunman. We thought that police cars fly into a parking lot at first but they're like Simon and then I peeked outside and I told my other coworkers that I heard but I heard gunshots. And then we heard several gunshots. And it just went on from there then when the officers came by and told us to stay in the back. And then locked the door don't let anybody in or out and just stay safe in the back away from now the front well we can't be seen. We do have officers actively engaging the shooters they've been taking fire. 84 police officer has now been injured still a very active situation in the shooter is actively quote shooting at. Ad asks they say they believe the gunman has a long gone and they do not know anything about the man's identity or his ideology at this point. They have not identified the shooter.
