BALTIMORE - At least 50 protestors were arrested in Baltimore Friday night. Fifteen of those arrested were in violation of the city's 10 p.m. curfew. Most of the streets emptied out by midnight, creating a rare moment of peace for Baltimore.

Freddie Gray's family hopes that trend continues.

"We ask that whoever comes to our city - a city that we love, a city that we live in - come in peace," noted Richard Shipley, Gray's stepfather. "And if you are not coming in peace, please don't come at all. The last thing that Freddie would want is to see the hardworking people of Baltimore lose their jobs and businesses because of his death."

The six officers charged have a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 27th.
