Baltimore state's attorney drops all remaining charges against police in the death of Freddie GrayUS prosecutors on Wednesday dropped all remaining charges against police in the death of Freddie Gray, an African American whose fatal injury in custody provoked riots in Baltimore and international condemnation.
