The Department of Justice will send two officials to Baltimore amid clashes in the city between police and citizens, new Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Monday night.
Vanita Gupta, who heads the Civil Rights Division, and Director of Community Oriented Policing Services Ronald Davis "will be traveling to Baltimore to meet with faith and community leaders, as well as city officials," Lynch said in a statement.
Gray was arrested by Baltimore police and sustained a spinal injury on April 12. He died a week later.
Lynch was sworn in on Monday and met with the president, in part to talk about the events in Baltimore, in the evening.
