Baltimore death sparks protests in New York, Boston

(AP) More than 100 people were arrested in New York City during a rally and march to protest the death of a Baltimore man critically injured in police custody.



The arrests Wednesday night came after police on a loudspeaker warned protesters they'd be taken into custody if they marched in the street.



Most of the arrests were for disorderly conduct.



Protesters first rallied in Manhattan's Union Square, where they chanted "No justice, no peace!" and "Hands up, don't shoot!"
