Not long after the clashes between police and mostly young rioters began on April 27, the day of Freddie Gray’s funeral, Brian Wassum, a 14-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was on a police skirmish line about 3:49 p.m. near Mondawmin Mall when he was struck in the head with a projectile.
