|Baltimore asks Justice Department to investigate police practices|
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake asked the U.S. Justice Department on Wednesday to investigate the city's police department for civil rights violations after the death of a black man from injuries sustained in police custody. The investigation will look into police practices such as frisks, street stops of suspects and arrests to see if they violate the U.S. Constitution, Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference. The request follows the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, 25, who sustained spinal injuries after being arrested. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan lifted a state of emergency for Baltimore on Wednesday.
|Tornadoes hit Oklahoma City area, airport evacuated|
|By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A series of tornadoes, including a major twister, touched down southwest of Oklahoma City on Wednesday, flipping cars and causing the escape of tigers and other animals from an exotic wildlife park, officials said. Tigers and other animals were able to briefly escape from the Tiger Safari park after a tornado struck the city of Tuttle, about 30 miles (48 km) southwest of Oklahoma City, though they were recaptured without further incident, the Grady County Sheriff's Office said. Passengers, visitors and employees at the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City were evacuated to a pedestrian tunnel for about 30 minutes as the storms moved through the area, the airport said on its Twitter feed. Several roads were closed because of debris, the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said.|
