Baltimore, MD- Each of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray have been indicted by a grand jury in Baltimore.
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby made the announcement on Thursday. The charges handed down to the “Baltimore Six” by the grand jury are similar to the charges filed by Mosby.
The officers are scheduled for arraignment on July 2nd.
Freddie Gray was arrested on April 12th after he made eye contact with officers and then ran away. Somehow during the process of being arrested, Gray’s spine became 80% detached from his neck. By the time he was taken to the hospital he had slipped into a coma. He died a week later.
Baltimore State’s Attorney 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 charges were brought against the officers in part because Gray’s pleas for medical attention were repeatedly ignored.
