Baltimore State Attorney: Mr. Gray's Death Was a Homicide, We Will File Criminal Charges

State Attorney Marilyn Mosby held a press conference in Baltimore today to address her administration’s investigation into the death of Freddie Gray, a death that spawned violent protests throughout Baltimore earlier this week. After assuring the press that she and her team had produced a thorough, fair and independent investigation into the case, Mosby declared that they had deemed Mr. Gray’s death a homicide and that they have ‘probable cause’ to file criminal charges.

“Over the course of our independent investigation, my team worked 12-and-14-hour days to interview dozens of witnesses,” Mosby said. “We listened to hours of police video tapes.”

Based on their study, Mosby said they would consider Mr. Gray’s death a homicide. That brought cheers from bystanders.

She then went through the timeline of events. Mr. Gray had been illegally arrested and had suffered a severe neck injury after being shackled, handcuffed, and not being secured in a seat belt, Mosby explained. She also indicated he could not breathe and requested an inhaler, to no avail.

Based on these findings, her administration is bringing several charges against the officers involved, including second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter and misconduct in office.

Mosby ensured the press that her team’s investigative findings were not an indictment on the entire force, disclosing that members of her own family members were once police officers.

She closed her remarks by ensuring the people of Baltimore that she hears their cries for justice, but also needs their cooperation.

“I heard your calls for justice and peace,” she said. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice for this young man.”
