By Lacey Johnson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - At least 2,000 people protesting the unexplained death of a black man while in police custody marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday, pausing at one point to confront officers in front of Camden Yards, home of the Orioles baseball team. In the biggest protest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died on Sunday, two clusters of marchers chanting "shut it down" started out at different times before merging during the afternoon into a single wave headed toward City Hall. Last year, there were weeks of protests across the country following the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of Eric Garner, in New York City who was placed in a chokehold during an attempted arrest. Saturday's protests came a day after Baltimore's police commissioner conceded that police had failed to provide Gray with timely medical attention for a spinal injury he had suffered sometime after he was apprehended and put inside a transport van.
