The most violent protests outside Baltimore occurred in Ferguson, Missouri, where three people were shot Tuesday night, the city police reported.

Police said they didn’t do the shooting. A 20-year-old man was arrested and the three victims were in stable condition — two with wounds to the neck, one in the leg, police said.

Police said about 300 people marched, with protesters throwing rocks at police, damaging four police cars and setting trash and debris on fire near Northwinds Estates and West Florissant, police said.

One business in Dellwood was damaged, police said. No officers were injured as police conducted anti-riot activities until 3 a.m.

In Los Angeles, six people protesting against police brutality were arrested Monday night when they failed to disperse, reported CNN affiliate KABC. About 50 people marched, KABC said.

On Tuesday, protesters gathered outside the Stapes Center, where the Los Angeles Clippers and the San Antonio Spurs were playing an NBA playoff game. They disrupted traffic and carried protest signs.

In Chicago, hundreds of protesters marched Tuesday from police headquarters at 35th and Michigan through the Southside, CNN affiliate WGN reported. Police made one arrest, for reckless conduct.

WGN said protesters spoke about police violence and the death of Rekia Boyd, who was killed by an off-duty officer in 2012. That officer was acquitted last week. The group plans to gather Wednesday night at the DePaul Law School.

About 100 people marched Monday night in Oakland in support of Baltimore protesters, reported CNN affiliate KABC.

Protesters were planning to march Wednesday night in New York, CNN affiliate WCBS reported. Mayor Bill de Blasio sent a message to the protesters: “I’d say that if you want to make change, keep things peaceful.”

A protest is planned for Thursday in Cincinnati, reported CNN affiliate WXIX.

Philly.com said a “Philly is Baltimore” protest will be held Thursday at Philadelphia City Hall.

    “I’d say that if you want to make change, keep things peaceful.”

    Shame so many ignore this valid point. Violence only causes any actual claims you might have to be lost. And I don’t care about your lame excuses to try to justify random violence, it’s not. It never is.
