Activists opposed to the permanent appointment of Baltimore’s interim police commissioner occupied City Hall Wednesday night and told police they wouldn’t leave until the commissioner and mayor agreed to a list of their demands, including changes to police tactics and significant investment in education and social services.

The protest lasted until the early morning hours, Baltimore Police said on their Facebook page.

“After hours of communication and warnings, a small number of protesters inside of City Hall decided to leave the building. The remaining protesters refused to leave the building. As a direct result of their failure to comply, the remaining protesters have been arrested and charged with trespassing. There are no reported injuries at this time to any protesters or officers.when Iin the early morning hours, police ended the occupation,” the post said.
