"The Kelly File" has learned that Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby asked police officers to target and patrol the area where Freddie Gray was arrested. 

Megyn Kelly said that a staff member in Mosby's office sent an email to the Baltimore Police Department to direct officers on behalf of the prosecutor to "crack down on the exact area" where Gray was arrested. 

The order was then passed along to the officers who worked in that area.

Trace Gallagher reported that Mosby asked police to target the North Avenue and Mount Street area after she received a series of pictures showing various drug deals happening at that intersection. 

Attorneys for six Baltimore police officers facing charges in the arrest and death of Gray said that the email exchange shows Mosby knew the area was a high-crime location. They state that the email helps support their argument that officers were within their rights to handcuff Gray. 

Gallagher said they want Mosby to recuse herself from the case because they believe she is now both "the prosecutor and a potential witness."
