Six police officers have been charged for the death of Freddie Gray.

Following an autopsy report, the State's Attorney has ruled Freddie Gray's death a homicide, and all six officers involved in his arrest have been charged. The 25-year-old man, who suffered spinal injuries while in police custody, has been the subject of riots in his hometown of Baltimore over the past week.

According to CNN, the driver of the vehicle that Gray suffered his injuries within has been hit with second-degree depraved-heart murder. Another officer has been charged with manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Two additional cops have been hit with involuntary manslaughter charges, while the remaining two will be looking at second-degree assault. Their names and the full list of charges can be found below.

This news comes after Baltimore Police reported findings from their own investigation yesterday, revealing that the police vehicle had made another previously unreported stop while Gray was in custody.

According to The Associated press, the police union opposes the charges, arguing "6 officers aren't responsible for Freddie Gray's death," and that the men were "diligent" in the case.

We'll keep you updated on any new information.
