BALTIMORE — Six Baltimore police officers were indicted by a grand jury Thursday for their roles in the death of Freddie Gray, an unarmed black man.
State Attorney Marilyn Mosby made the announcement Thursday. The charges
returned by the grand jury were similar to the charges Mosby announced about
three weeks ago.
Mosby has said Gray’s neck was broken because he was injured while being
handcuffed, shackled and placed head-first into a police van. She says his pleas
for medical attention were repeatedly ignored.
Gray was arrested April 12. He died in a hospital a week later and became a
symbol of what protesters say was police brutality against blacks.
