Attorney General Meets With Freddie Gray’s Family In Baltimore

Posted by:

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is in Baltimore today where she is meeting with the family of Freddie Gray, the black man whose death led to riots in the city and charges against six police officers.

The Justice Department and the FBI are investigating the events that led to Gray’s death for possible civil rights violations. As we have previously reported, Gray, 25, was arrested April 12 and suffered a serious spine injury while in police custody. He died April 19.

Lynch was also scheduled to meet with police, local officials, members of Congress and community groups.

She was joined by Ron Davis who leads the community-oriented policing office; Vanita Gupta, acting assistant attorney general for civil rights; and Grande Lum of the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service.
