Freddie Gray Trial: Jury Deadlocked in Case of William Porter

Baltimore Police Department

Jurors in the manslaughter trial of a Baltimore police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray say they’re deadlocked, but the judge overseeing the case has told them to keep deliberating.

The jury sent a note to Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams on Tuesday afternoon after about nine hours of deliberations over two days in the trial of Officer William Porter.

He is the first of six officers to stand trial on charges stemming from Gray’s death in April.
