All six Baltimore police officers involved in the April 12 arrest of Freddie Gray are facing criminal charges, including second degree murder, assault, manslaughter, and misconduct. At a press conference this morning, the Baltimore state’s attorney, Marilyn Mosby, said Freddie Gray’s death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy that had been expedited by the state’s medical examiner. Gray died April 19 from spinal cord injuries sustained within police custody. Arrest warrants have been issued for the officers.
