Maryland State Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced Friday morning that Freddie Gray's death at the hands of Baltimore police was a homicide, and that criminal charges will be filed against 6 police officers involved.

"The findings of our comprehensive, thorough and independent investigation, coupled with the medical examiner's determination that Mr. Gray's death was a homicide, which we received today, has led us to believe that we have probable cause to file criminal charges," she said at a press conference.

"A warrant has been issued for their arrest."

While six officers are being charged with various crimes in the case, not all were directly responsible for Gray's death, according to Mosby. They were all "diligent in the case," the AP reports.
Mosby also noted the three officers who originally detained Gray on April 12 had made an illegal arrest.
"No crime had been committed by Mr. Gray," said Mosby, who also said that the knife Gray had been carrying while apprehended was legal under Maryland law.

After the initial arrest, the officers broke other laws including failure to secure Gray with a seatbelt, generally mistreating Gray in the ensuing car ride and ignoring his "obvious and recognized" need for medical care.
