(KFVS) - Baltimore city State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby says six officers in the police-custody death of Freddie Gray have been charged.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of six officers in the Gray case. It is unclear if they're in custody.

Charges against the officers in include 2nd-degree murder, manslaughter, and assault.

One officer is charged with 2nd-degree murder in Freddie Gray's death, according to Mosby.

One officer faces a second-degree murder charge while the other officers face manslaughter or assault charges, among others.

Mosby says the officers failed to get Gray medical help even though he requested it repeatedly after he was arrested April 12. She called his arrest illegal.

At some point while he was in custody, he suffered a mysterious spinal injury and died a week later.

Mosby says she will not turn Freddie Gray case over to special prosecutor.
