BALTIMORE — Attorney General Loretta Lynch is pledging to help Baltimore and improve the city's police department after meeting with the family of a man who was fatally injured in police custody.
Lynch met privately with Freddie Gray's family on Tuesday, days after Baltimore's state's attorney charged six police officers involved in Gray's arrest. Gray's injury and death sparked protests and riots that prompted Maryland's governor to bring in the National Guard.
Lynch also met with faith and community leaders, including Reps. Elijah Cummings, John Sarbanes and Dutch Ruppersberger and Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin. She says it's inspiring to see people come together to reclaim the city.
Lynch is also set to thank law enforcement officers for their service, long hours and protecting demonstrators.
