BALTIMORE, MD -- Freddie Gray died after suffering a  “high energy injury.” It’s been more than two months since the city of Baltimore was rocked by unrest following the arrest of the 25-year-old that eventually resulted in his death.

The manor in which police handled Gray and whether or not he should have been arrested in the first place, is what led to six police officers facing serious charges including manslaughter and assault.

The Baltimore Sun got a hold of Gray’s autopsy and they claim the report compared his injury to that of someone in a shallow water diving accident. The officers in question have been accused of shackling Gray’s hands and feet, but not securing him in a seat belt after he was thrown in the back of a police van.

That autopsy report allegedly states Gray was at risk for an unsupported fall during acceleration or deceleration of the van.  All six of the former Baltimore police officers entered a no guilty plea early this week. Their trials are set to begin in October.
