(Reuters) - Baltimore will ask the Justice Department to investigate its police department for civil rights violations after the death of a black man from injuries sustained in police custody, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said on Wednesday. The review will look into police "patterns and practices" and potential violations of the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment, which bars unreasonable searches and seizures, Rawlings-Blake told a news conference. The request follows the death last month of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died of spinal injuries after being arrested by police. Rawlings-Blake's announcement came a day after Attorney General Loretta Lynch visited Baltimore.
