State's Atty: Freddie Gray's Death Ruled a Homicide; All 6 Cops Charged
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby today announced that there is “probable cause” to file charges against six Baltimore police in the death of Freddie Gray.
Mosby said that the medical examiner has ruled Gray’s death a homicide. All six police officers were charged in connection with his death, with charges ranging from murder to assault.
State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, speaking at a Friday news conference, blasted the six police involved in Gray's arrest on April 12, during which he suffered a broken neck that proved fatal a week later. Mosby said the police had no basis for arresting Gray, who police said avoided eye contact and was carrying a switchblade. One police officer was charged with second-degree murder, while others were charged with crimes including manslaughter and assault.
“I heard your call for no justice, no peace,” she said. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man.”
Mosby also noted that she comes from three generations of law enforcement and said that the alleged actions of these officers should not and will not damage relationships between police and prosecutors.
“Thank you for your courage, commitment and sacrifice for the betterment of our communities,” she said.
