A grand jury in Baltimore has indicted six officers in the death of Freddie Gray, the city’s top prosecutor said Thursday.
In a hasty news conference, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby reeled off the charges handed down by the grand jury against the officers, Garrett Miller, Alicia White, Edward Nero, Caesar Goodson Jr., Brian Rice and William Porter.
She did not explain the charges or take any questions from reporters.
In some cases the grand jury charges are more serious than the charges she filed May 1, the result of her office’s independent investigation of Gray’s death following his April 19 arrest. Gray sustained neck injuries while riding in a police van and died a week later.
Gray’s death triggered days of unrest in Baltimore, including a night of rioting and looting.
