Baltimore's state's attorney announced Friday that there was probable cause in the Freddie Gray case and that charges will be filed against six police officers in his death.

"I assured his family that no one is above the law and that I would pursue justice on their behalf," Marilyn Mosby said in a press conference on Friday.

The charges against the officers include second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office, among others.

These are Mosby's first public comments on the case. Her announcement that her office's investigation had determined Gray's death was a homicide was met with cheers from Baltimore residents, who have held protests and riots demanding justice for the 25-year-old.

Gray was arrested April 12 and died a week later from his injuries. His death has prompted calls for police reform nationwide.
