2:38 am
be truth and validity behind the connection in copenhagen is the pledge of allegiance was found after the gunmen's death prior to the attacks. he was killed in a shootout with police later that day. at the moment there is nothing credible but already we're seeing isis in the radical inspired way trying to take credit for it. >> the identities of the gunmen unknown right now. the investigation just beginning. nic robertson in london. thanks. the streets of baltimore, everyone waking up in the city with no curfew for the first time in a week that as we learn more about the police officers charged in connection with the death of freddie gray. that's next. ♪ ♪
