What started with protests following weeks of tension related to the death of Freddie Gray has turned more far flung and violent.

There have been fires and looting and other crowd activity. Here’s a map someone has begun for collecting data on where alarms and fires and looting have been reported from yesterday into today. You’ll see how widespread the reports are, though surely there are more spots not yet listed, as this moves quickly.

The map was launched and is being updated by civic hacker Shea Frederick and Hopkins data scientist Ryan Smith.
