Police officers have converged on Baltimore's City Hall where at least six protesters could be seen being led away to vans and vehicles after an hourslong occupation of the building to protest moves to make permanent the appointment of the city's interim police commissioner.

At least 25 officers lined up outside City Hall and more police stood out back as protesters were led off, several with hands behind their backs. Protest sympathizers outside chanted: "It is our duty to fight for our freedom, we have nothing to lose but our shame!"

Kwame Rose, an organizer of protesters, say police issued a warning early Thursday and he and others departed. A small group remained before the police presence expanded.

The occupation came amid city deliberations on making interim commissioner Kevin Davis permanent.
