BALTIMORE - A group of protesters stretching more than a block has left Penn Station in Baltimore for a march to City Hall to protest Freddie Gray's death after being hurt while in police custody.

People are chanting, "Tell the truth. Stop the lies. Freddie Gray didn't have to die."

Jacob Kinder, a junior at Goucher University in nearby Towson, Maryland, said Gray's death and the subsequent protests and riots have been a big topic all week on campus.

"I think there's a pretty big fault line between students who think that the protests are justified and the riots are justified and people who don't see race as a problem," Kinder said.

Kinder is white, as were many in the group just before 6 p.m. The marchers included a large number of college students.
