By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Hundreds of young people faced off with police in Baltimore on Monday after the funeral of a black city man who died in police custody, and local law enforcement officials warned of a threat by gangs against officers. Youths stoned a city bus and passing police vehicles outside the Mondawmin Mall in northwest Baltimore just a few blocks from the site of the funeral. At the funeral, speaker after speaker before the crowd packing the 2,500-seat New Shiloh Baptist Church said the world was watching to see if justice would be done for 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died on April 19 from a spinal injury after police arrested him a week before. "At 25, he had to feel that the walls were closing in," said the Rev. Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple AME Church, who delivered the eulogy.
