"Hands up, don't shoot" has become one of the primary rallying cries for those in Ferguson, Mo., protesting the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown last week.

The slogan has now spread to Baltimore, with a two part mural on the boarded-up back of a liquor store at the corner of East Preston Street and Greenmount Avenue. "Hands up" is on one level of the building, while a shadowy figure with arms raised is on a lower level.

Baltimore has a significant street art scene, but it was not immediately apparent which artist was responsible for the work.
