Baltimore police have suspended six officers after the death of a man who was injured while in police custody.
Freddie Gray, 25, was critically injured after his arrest April 12. He died early Sunday morning at Shock Trauma. According to the family’s lawyer, Gray suffered a severe spinal cord injury.
This has become a national story, another case in which an encounter with police has led to a death, raising questions about police conduct.
“We are a community on the edge right now,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said during a news conference Monday afternoon.
