There has been a breaking news update in the Freddie Death case. Six officers have been indicted in the Baltimore man’s death, according to State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. All of the officers will have to face a judge on July 2, she said.

Gray suffered lethal spinal injury after cops handcuffed, shackled and placed him head-first into a police van and his cries for medical help were ignored.

“As is often the case, during an ongoing investigation, charges can and should be revised based upon the evidence,” Mosby said.
