BALTIMORE – Baltimore's top prosecutor is seeking a gag order in the case of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died a week after suffering a critical spinal injury while in police custody and garnered national attention.
Six officers have been charged in connection to Gray's death.
Rochelle Ritchie, a spokeswoman for State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, confirmed Friday that the office is seeking a gag order but would not provide further details.
Mosby announced the charges, which range from second-degree assault to "depraved heart" murder, one day after receiving an investigative report from police. The announcement followed more than a week of protests that at one point gave way to violence, arson and looting.
Attorneys for five of the six officers have not spoken publicly about the case since charges were filed.
