LIVE: Obama expected to make statement on Baltimore

President Obama is expected to address the state of emergency in Baltimore during a Tuesday press conference from The White House.

Obama has not publicly made remarks about the protests and violence in the wake of the death of Freddie Gray, a Baltimore man who was arrested and died after a spinal injury. Obama did meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss the matter Monday, but reporters were barred from covering the gathering.
