BALTIMORE (AP) — Funeral plans are set for Freddie Gray, the Baltimore man who died a week after he was critically injured in police custody.

A wake will be held Sunday. The funeral is set for 11 a.m. Monday at New Shiloh Baptist Church.

The Rev. Harold Carter Jr. will preside at the service and the Rev. Jamal Harrison Bryant will deliver the eulogy.

Gray was arrested on April 12 and loaded into a police van. At some point, he suffered an unexplained spinal injury while in police custody. He died last Sunday.

Local and federal authorities are investigating the death. Six officers have been suspended with pay.

Numerous marches and rallies have been held over the last week to protest Gray's death.
