BOSTON (AP) - Several hundred people have marched peacefully in Boston in support of activists in Baltimore following the death of man in police custody there.

The Boston Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1GOSvk6) the Saturday afternoon march from Mattapan Square briefly blocked the intersection of Blue Hill Avenue and Morton Street for a moment of silence. Some of the demonstrators also helped volunteers pick up trash in a park during a “Boston Shines” spring cleanup event.

Police escorted the marchers along the route.

Some protesters expressed their anger at police in Boston, saying an officer who apologized Friday after waving a toy gun in the face of a man videotaping him should also be disciplined. Police are still investigating.

Some demonstrators carried signs Saturday that read, “Black Lives Matter” and “Stop The Racist Killer Cops.”
