Jury selection began for the first of six indicted Baltimore police officers
Protests erupted outside a Baltimore courthouse Monday as jury selection began for the first of six police officers being tried in the high-profile death of Freddie Gray.
Some of the roughly 50 protesters could be heard shouting “All night all day! We will fight for Freddie Gray!” as prospective jurors were being screened for Officer William Porter’s trial, the Washington Post reported.
Gray, 25, died in April after suffering an injury in the back of a police transport van, sparking protests in the city and across the nation.
