Administrative review of Baltimore police custody death done

Posted May 12

— The Montgomery County Police Department has completed an administrative investigation into the in-custody death of a 25-year-old black man in Baltimore.

Baltimore police announced Friday that the investigation into the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray, who died a week after his neck was broken while he was handcuffed and shackled but left unrestrained in the back of a police transport wagon, has been turned over for review.

Six officers were charged in connection to Gray's death, which prompted civil unrest throughout Baltimore. Three officers were acquitted at trial, and the remaining cases were dropped.

The administrative review was conducted by Montgomery and Howard county police departments to avoid any conflicts of interest.

The results of the investigation are not being publicly released as they are considered personnel records.
