Man shot near scene of Baltimore riots

A man has been shot in the chest near the scene of unrest in Baltimore in April.

Police tweeted that a man was shot on North Avenue and detectives are investigating.

It is not clear who shot the man and no other details have been released.

Rioting and looting broke out in the area in April after the funeral of Freddie Gray, a black man who suffered a fatal spinal cord injury in police custody.

The city's Office of Emergency Management tweeted that there was police activity at North Avenue and Carey Street and warned people to avoid the area.
