On Monday, a protest and candlelight vigil for Gray turned “disorderly,” according to police. A store was “ransacked” and one person was arrested.

However, one witness at the scene told NBCNewYork.com that he heard no warning being given.
Gray had previously been arrested four times for charges including grand larceny, according to NBCNewYork.com.
