In Baltimore, the fourth of six police officers to go on trial for the death of Freddie Gray has been acquitted. Lieutenant Brian Rice was the highest-ranking officer charged in the death of Gray, who died after sustaining spinal injuries in police custody in April 2015. Rice was charged with involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. Two other police officers have also been acquitted. A fourth trial resulted in a hung jury. The trial of a fifth officer involved in the case is expected to begin later this month. We’ll go to Baltimore later in the broadcast.
