"We have probable cause to file criminal charges," said Marilyn Mosby, the state's top prosecutor.

Six officers are expected to be arraigned Friday after being charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

Gray's death last month sparked several days of protests, spotlighting a rift between the police and the city's African-American community.

"We have probable cause to file criminal charges," said Marilyn Mosby, the state's top prosecutor.

Arrest warrants went out for the six officers accused in the death of Gray. At least 5 were in custody as of late Friday morning.

"There will be justice for Mr. Gray, there will be justice for his family, and there will be justice for the people of Baltimore," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.
