Baltimore police took down a rioter on April 27 after they chased a group of protesters and he didn't run fast enough (video below).

Around 4:30 p.m., a group of rioters including the straggler, surrounded a police car and began to destroy it. They smashed windows and jumped up and down on top of the car until police arrived on the scene.

Though the mob scattered, one hoodie-clad protester ran too slowly and was overtaken by an officer, and CNN caught it on video.

Protests began in Baltimore on April 19 following the death of Freddie Gray.

According to police, Gray was stopped on April 12 after a foot pursuit. The van transporting Gray to the police station stopped three times. During the first stop, Gray was placed in leg irons. During the second stop, the driver stopped to “deal” with Gray. On the third stop, the driver found Gray on the floor of the van.

At some point, Gray suffered from a severe spinal cord injury. Though a full autopsy has not yet been performed, the spinal injury likely contributed to Gray’s death.
