Baltimore jurors are hung; officer William Porter’s trial has been declared a mistrial. He was the first of six officers to face trial for his actions in the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who was injured while in police custody following his arrest back in April 2015.
Video of the aftermath of the arrest shows a struggling Gray who had a hard time walking and moaned in pain. Medical reports revealed he’d suffered a severe spinal injury while being transported off the scene. He died a week later.
