CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — Colorado theater shooter James Holmes appeared calm as his judge told jurors Monday how to decide if he should be executed, spend his life in prison, or be committed to an institution as criminally insane.
By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Seven Baltimore police officers were injured on Monday as rioters threw bricks and stones and burned patrol cars in violent protests after the funeral of a black man who died in police custody. The riots broke out just a few blocks from the site of the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in northwest Baltimore and then spread through other parts of the city, after local law enforcement warned of a threat by gangs. Television images showed looting and a mob of rioters jumping on the top of a police car, after teenaged crowds ignored calls to disperse and clashed with a line of hundreds of police. Gray's death reignited a public outcry over police treatment of African Americans that flared last year after the killings of unarmed black men in Ferguson, Missouri, New York City and elsewhere.
