A wake has begun at a funeral home in Baltimore in memory of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died a week ago after sustaining serious injuries while in police custody.

The wake is being held at the Vaughn Green East funeral home, where a funeral will be held Monday. A church service was held for Gray earlier in the day.

The mourning came a day after violence marred a protest Saturday in which thousands of people took to the streets to demand answers in the case. Gray's death on April 19 has intensified a national debate over police treatment of African-Americans.
