Protests continued Thursday in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old man who died from severe injuries he sustained while in police custody.
Several hundred people gathered at Baltimore City Hall, then marched toward the harbor.
Baltimore police officers were out in large numbers, and the department said it had canceled time off for them.
The protest was largely peaceful. At one point, people surrounded a police car before moving away.
However, a scuffle did break out between protesters and officers, as captured on video by WJZ-TV.
Two people were taken into custody, according to police.
Others continued to demonstrate outside the Baltimore Police's Western Division.
Concerns about out-of-town protesters prompted Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to plan a meeting with local clergy members, activists, and community leaders on Friday, the Baltimore Sun reported.
"The mayor wants to make sure that we are providing them with everything they need to make sure people can protest peacefully," Rawlings-Blake's spokesman, Kevin Harris, told the Sun. "Like the mayor, Baltimore is their home. It's where they grew up. They don't want to see outside influences come in and have a negative impact. The mayor is determined to not let us go backwards."
Gray died Sunday, a week after he was arrested on April 12. Lawyers for his family said his spine was 80% severed at the time of his death. Officials have confirmed he died of a spinal injury.
