UPDATE (11:34 am): It appears that all police officers involved are being charged. From the Baltimore Sun:

The six Baltimore police officers involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray – who died last month after being injured in police custody – have been charged criminally, State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosbyannounced Friday.

Officer Caesar Goodson Jr., 45, who was the driver of a police van that carried Gray through the streets of Baltimore, was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, second-degree assault, two vehicular manslaughter charges and misconduct in office.

Officer William Porter, 25, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Lt. Brian Rice, 41, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Sgt. Alicia White, 30, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Officer Edward Nero, 29, was charged with second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

Officer Garrett Miller, 26, was charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.

Warrants were issued for the arrest of all six officers. It wasn’t immediately clear where the officers were Friday morning.

Maryland State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced criminal charges against two policemen involved in the arrest of Freddie Gray, which she declared “a homicide” and “an illegal arrest.” She also said the knife Gray was carrying was not illegal.

Lieutenant Brian Rice, 41, Sergeant Alicia White, 30, and Officers William Porter, 25, Garrett Miller, 26, Edward Nero, 29, and Caesar Goodson, 45.

Mosby said that Gray was not secured in the van by the seat-belt, which led to his death. During one of the stops policemen checked on Gray, saw that he was unresponsive, but failed to have any actions.

Baltimore police have sent its report tot he state attorney a day earlier than expected.

On Thursday new details about Freddie Gray’s arrest emerged. Police announced that the van carrying him made another stop that was previously unknown.
