Six Baltimore police officers will face criminal charges, including second-degree murder and manslaughter, in the death of a black man who was arrested and suffered fatal injuries while riding in a moving police van, the city's chief prosecutor said on Friday.
Marilyn Mosby, the state's attorney for Baltimore City, said Gray, who died a week after his April 12 arrest, suffered a critical neck injury as a result of being handcuffed inside the van. She said officers failed to provide medical attention to Gray even though he asked for it on at least two occasions.
Warrants have been issued for the arrest of the officers charged in the case, she said. In addition to murder and manslaughter, charges include assault, misconduct and false imprisonment.

Soul singer Ben E. King, best known for his 1961 hit ‘Stand By Me,’ has died. He was 76 years old.

Princeton University has long been known as the “conservative Ivy.” It’s a reference that encompasses not just the school’s centrist political image when compared with Ivy League universities like Harvard or Brown, but also its bucolic atmosphere and generally quiescent student body.
But Princeton’s cultivated image of ivory tower calm seemed to vanish like a daguerreotype from another era recently, when student activists succeeded in putting the question of divestment from Israel up for a vote before the entire student body. With breathtaking speed, students from both sides of the issue began accusing each other of tearing down campaign posters, misrepresenting information and making offensive social media posts. Charges of anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and hatred of Arabs also flew over social media.
A previously undisclosed stop made by the police van carrying Freddie Gray after his arrest in Baltimore has been discovered by investigators, police said, as they announced they had completed a criminal inquiry into his death.
Details of what happened during the stop may shed new light on how Gray sustained fatal injuries in police custody. It was the second of four made by the vehicle on its journey to the western district police headquarters.
A leaked police document that claims Freddie Gray was “intentionally trying to injure himself” while in the back of a police van in Baltimore after his arrest is being questioned due to inconsistencies with earlier reports.
Gray died a week after his videotaped April 12 arrest due to injuries sustained under uncertain circumstances while in police custody, sparking protests in Baltimore and around the nation.
Baltimore Police Department Commissioner Anthony Batts announced Thursday that the results of the department's investigation into the death of Freddie Gray — who died after he was critically injured in police custody — has been turned over to a state prosecutor.
Batts told reporters that during the course of the investigation, 30 detectives were dedicated to focus on the case as their "full-time job."
The commissioner stressed that the investigation is still not over and that "if new evidence is found, we will follow it," going on to say that Gray's family and the community "deserve transparency and truth."
