Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced today that the six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray have been criminally charged, according to news reports. Officials have ruled his death a homicide.

Gray died April 19 of a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody. He was arrested on April 12. Deputy Commissioner Kevin Davis noted Friday that  Gray “should have received medical attention and did not.”

Interestingly The Baltimore Police Department said Gray was arrested on suspicion of possessing a switchblade. But Mosby indicated in the press conference that the knife Gray had on him was not a switchblade and was lawful under Maryland law, concluding that “No crime was committed by Freddie Gray.” Freddie Gray was illegally arrested.
