Businesses struggle in wake of Freddie Gray pretrial hearings

BALTIMORE —While it's business as usual inside the courthouse, it was not so much for the businesses outside. City officials asked folks to avoid the area around the courthouse if possible and that's hurting some businesses.

Protesters took to the streets of downtown Baltimore Wednesday, but ended up taking away business from some shops.

"I built a restaurant downtown because it's the heart of the city and I got killed, got the rug pulled out right from under me," said Jay Shaffer, owner of Argosy Café.
