Members of the community pray during Sunday morning worship at New Shiloh Baptist Church, where Freddie Gray's April 27 funeral service was held in BaltimoreBy Scott Malone and Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - The mayor of Baltimore on Sunday lifted a 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew she had imposed on the city last week after a night of looting and arson that followed the death of a young black man from injuries suffered while in the police custody. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she believed sufficient calm had returned to Baltimore to allow her to end a curfew put in place last Tuesday after violence erupted over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray. "I believe we have reached that point today." The surprise announcement on Friday by the city's chief prosecutor that she was bringing criminal charges against the six police officers involved in Gray's arrest has helped to defuse outrage over Gray's death. The demonstrations in the mostly black city of 625,000 were reprise of a nationwide wave of protests over police brutality that erupted last year after killings of unarmed black men by white officers in Missouri, New York and elsewhere.
