Six officers have been charged in the death of Freddie Gray

President Barack Obama has spoken out about the decision to charge six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, saying it’s vital that the truth comes out. He also expressed his hope protests will continue to be peaceful.

• In an open letter to Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, the city police union’s president said none of the officers was responsible for Gray’s death. “To the contrary, at all times, each of the officers diligently balanced their obligations to protect Mr. Gray and discharge their duties to protect the public,” wrote Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Gene Ryan.

• Ryan asked in the letter, which came out just before Mosby announced that six officers face charges in Gray’s death, that a special independent prosecutor be appointed to look into the case.

Full story:

Baltimore’s prosecutor brought charges Friday against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, saying he suffered “a severe and critical neck injury” as a result of being placed “handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained” inside a police van.

The most serious charge: second-degree depraved-heart murder for the driver of the van, Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr.

Read the charges

“To the people of Baltimore and demonstrators across America, I heard your call for ‘No Justice, No peace,’ ” Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said. “Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice on behalf of this young man.”

In addition to the charges against Goodson, another officer was charged Friday with several counts, including manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Two other officers face charges including including involuntary manslaughter. An additional two officers are charged with several counts, including second-degree assault.

Warrants have been issued for the officers’ arrests. The officers are expected to be arraigned Friday, according to a source with knowledge of the proceedings.

Mosby’s announcement brought cheers from onlookers at her news conference. Motorists in Baltimore honked horns and support exploded online.

“Let me tell you I just sat and watched Marilyn Mosby speak and as she announced everything I shed a tear..someone finally got it right,” Twitter user TaviBabi wrote.

Other demonstrations were scheduled in Chicago, New York, Seattle, Dallas, San Francisco and Oakland, California.

The mother of Trayvon Martin, the African-American youth killed in 2012 by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, plans to attend one of the Baltimore rallies, the Rev. Jamal Bryant of Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple said in a tweet.

Authorities pleaded for patience Thursday after police said they’d finished their investigation, but wouldn’t publicly release their findings. Police turned their files over to prosecutors.

Some Baltimore businesses join fight for change

“We ask for the public to remain patient and peaceful and to trust the process of the justice system,” Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby said Thursday.

For the most part, that patience held Thursday night. Marches were peaceful in Baltimore, although police in Philadelphia clashed with protesters as officers tried to prevent them from blocking a highway.
