The death of Freddie Gray has been ruled a homicide caused by severe trauma.
Gray, 25, was taken into police custody in Baltimore on April 12 and sustained a spinal injury during that time that required medical attention. He went into a coma several days later and died a week after his apprehension.
Police have never said why they took him into custody in the first place, noting only that he ran from officers, and they have not publicly explained how Gray received the spinal injury.
Violent protests rocked Baltimore on Monday afternoon and through the night, prompting hundreds of arrests and a citywide curfew that extends through this weekend. There have also been a number of peaceful protests through this week.
