According to the Associated Press, the United States Department of Justice will not charge the 6 officers involved in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray.

At the time Grey was handcuffed and shackled to the seat in the back of the vehicle.

At the trial, three officers were acquitted. Marlyin Mosby the Baltimore State’s Attorney dropped the remaining cases.

The Gray family attorney Bill Murphy says that the Justice Department notified him on Tuesday that charges wouldn’t be filled.

Five officers remain and are on trial for internal disciplinary. Their trials begin on October 30, 2017.
