The Department of Justice has declined to bring federal charges against the six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, according to The Associated Press.
Gray's neck was broken while he was riding in the back of a police transport wagon in April of 2015. Gray, a 25-year-old black man, was handcuffed and shackled at the time, but was not wearing a seat belt.
His death set off weeks of protesting and unrest in Baltimore.
Three of the officers charged in connection with Gray's death were acquitted at trial. Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby then decided to drop the remaining cases.
