BALTIMORE, MD -- Jury selection is underway for the trial of Officer William Porter.

Porter is the first of six police officers to be tried in the death of Freddie Gray; the 25 year old who suffered a severe spinal injury in the back of a police van last April, setting off a wave of protests nationwide.

In Baltimore today protesters chanted so loudly, they could be heard by prospective jurors and Porter's lawyers again requested a change of venue.

Porter faces involuntary manslaughter, second degree assault, misconduct in office, and reckless endangerment.
