Freddie Gray Family, Baltimore Reach Settlement

The city of Baltimore has reached a $6.4 million wrongful death settlement with the family of Freddie Gray. Gray suffered a fatal spine injury while in police custody.

"The proposed settlement agreement should not be interpreted as a judgment on the guilt or innocence of the officers facing trial.

"This settlement is being proposed solely because it is in the best interest of the city, and avoids costly and protracted litigation that would only make it more difficult for our city to heal and potentially cost taxpayers many millions more in damages," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.
