PITTSBURGH - About 300 people peacefully protested in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood Saturday to show solidarity with counterparts in Baltimore.
Channel 11’s Renee Kaminski was on hand to talk to the protesters in Schenley Plaza, who gathered near Forbes Avenue at 6 p.m. to protest against police brutality in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray, who died last month while in police custody in Baltimore.
