BALTIMORE — The mugshots of the six Baltimore police officers charged in connection with Freddie Gray’s death were released by Baltimore police Friday evening.

The most serious charge: second-degree depraved-heart murder for the driver of the van, Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr.

In addition to the charges against Goodson, another officer was charged Friday with several counts, including manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Two other officers face charges including including involuntary manslaughter. An additional two officers are charged with several counts, including second-degree assault.

The officers’ names and the full list of charges are listed at the bottom of this article.

In an open letter to Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, the city police union’s president said that “none of the officers involved are responsible for the death of (Freddie) Gray.” “To the contrary, at all times, each of the officers diligently balanced their obligations to protect Mr. Gray and discharge their duties to protect the public,” wrote Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Gene Ryan. Ryan asked in the letter that a special independent prosecutor be appointed to look into the case.

Mosby’s announcement Friday brought cheers from onlookers at her news conference. Motorists in Baltimore honked horns and support exploded online.
