Closing Arguments And Deliberations Begin In First Freddie Gray Trial

Baltimore is on edge after the mistrial in the case of an officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray.  Some small groups of protesters are taking to the streets in response to the news that jurors couldn't reach a verdict on any charges against Baltimore police officer William Porter.   

He was facing involuntary manslaughter and other charges in connection to Gray's death while in police custody back in April.  Things have be relatively calm following the hung jury announcement, though Police Commissioner Kevin Davis confirmed there had been some arrests.  Gray's family is urging for peace and calm in the city. 

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says the city is prepared to respond to any disturbances following the mistrial in the case of an officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Blake said "we must respect the outcome of the judicial process."  She also called for respect of the city's neighborhoods, residents and businesses.
