The jury has failed to reach a verdict in the case of six police officers standing trial over the death of 25 year old Freddie Gray.
The first of the six officers facing trial, William Porter is facing a four count charge of manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct.
Freddie Gray died in the back of a Police van on April 19 in Baltimore after sustaining a spinal cord injury while being handcuffed on his wrists and ankles.
Officer Porter’s defense team have urged for a mistrial to be declared but the jurors have been asked to keep deliberating.
There are fears of violent protests whenever a verdict is reached.
