DALLAS (AP) - About 400 demonstrators marched and rallied in downtown Dallas to protest police brutality after the death of a black man in Baltimore police custody.

The demonstrators gathered at a Dallas County criminal courts building late Friday afternoon before marching several blocks to a plaza in front of the Dallas federal courthouse. Some carried placards bearing such slogans as “End Police Brutality” and “If you want police, work for justice.”

There were no reports of disturbances or arrests as police officers lined the march route with a police helicopter hovering overhead.

The demonstration came in response to the death of Freddie Gray, who died after his spine had been severed while in Baltimore police custody. Charges against six officers were announced Friday.
