Charges of homicide, manslaughter, misconduct and more have been filed against six police officers who were involved in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced on Friday.
All six officers were already suspended due to Gray’s death, which has sparked protests in Baltimore and in other cities across the country. Mosby said warrants had been issued for the officers’ arrests, but she could not confirm if they were currently in custody.
“Mr. Gray suffered a severe and critical neck injury as a result of being handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained inside of the BPD wagon,” she said. She also added that officers had no probable cause to arrest Gray, and that the knife that was found in his possession was actually legal.
Residents celebrated in the Baltimore streets after the announcement was made.
