Judge Declares Mistrial In Freddie Gray Case

The Baltimore Sun reports:

Judge Barry G. Williams on Wednesday declared a mistrial in the trial of Officer William G. Porter on all four counts. Porter, 26, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in the April arrest and death of Freddie Gray. Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby charged Porter and five other officers in Gray’s arrest and death on May 1, and many have watched the proceedings in Porter’s trial closely.

CNN reports that Baltimore officials are bracing for a possible repeat of the civil unrest that rocked the city earlier this year.
