Baltimore: Freddie Gray’s Family Settles

Baltimore officials have reached a $6.4 million wrongful death settlement with the family of Freddie Gray.

Gray, 25 years old, died in April from a neck injury he suffered while in police custody. The agreement comes in the wake of renewed demonstrations which broke out after a court hearing in which a judge concluded the six Baltimore police officers indicted in Gray’s death and arrest should be given separate trials.

The deal must still be approved by the city’s Board of Estimates, the governing body that oversees the city’s spending. That group, which includes Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (D), is expected to meet Wednesday.

ABC’s Scott Goldberg joined us from New York City to discuss.
