INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — More than two dozen protesters have gathered in downtown Indianapolis to protest police brutality and show support for Baltimore residents following the death of a suspect while in police custody.

Participants marched around Monument Circle Wednesday evening chanting “No racist police” and carrying signs with slogans that included, “I’m not scared of the apocalypse. I’m scared of a copalypse.”

The march was designed to call attention to the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray, who was critically injured while in police custody and died April 19.

Gray’s death has sparked days of protests in Baltimore, including some that turned violent.

Six officers have been suspended as part of an investigation. Police said they expect to submit their report on Gray’s death to prosecutors on Friday.
