U.S. Declines To Pursue Charges Against Officers Involved In Freddie Gray's Death

The United States has declined to pursue charges against the six police officers involved in the death of Baltimore man Freddie Gray according to the New York Daily News. Mr. Gray died from a severe spinal injury after allegedly 'bouncing' around the back of a police van following his arrest for carrying a switchblade.

Six officers faced criminal charges but were not convicted for Gray's death a week after the ride, which sparked violent protests and a riot in downtown Baltimore. Federal officials have also been looking into the death since 2015, though theBaltimore Sun reported Tuesday that sources close to the investigation say no charges will come of the nearly two-and-a-half-year probe.
