Freddie Gray's family will settle with the city of Baltimore for $6.4 million, the NY Post reports.

Gray died as a result of neck and back injuries he suffered in the back of a police transport van in April.

Six Baltimore police officers were arrested and charged with second-degree assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment.

The settlement still needs the approval of a board that oversees city spending.

“The proposed settlement agreement going before the board of estimates should not be interpreted as a judgment on the guilt or innocence of the officers facing trial,” Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a news release. “This settlement is being proposed solely because it is in the best interest of the city, and avoids costly and protracted litigation that would only make it more difficult for our city to heal and potentially cost taxpayers many millions more in damages.”

Thanks to loyal reader Marcella B. for the tip.

    • Yashara Bat Orion

      There was a good article about Freddie and his sister being lead poisoning victims making them mentally impaired. They received a settlement and one of those companies that does cash payouts actually gave them a loan and kept calling his sister to get more money. I don't remember if Freddie ever collected on his but I know the sister received a small amount like 15k for signing over a portion of the balance to this company. I hope they learned a lesson and will not do the same this time.

      I'll concede not all of any groups are all bad, of course. My apology. It's just they make me feel rather unsafe around them & equally frightened for my brothers and sisters.

      Be careful what you ask for Jesus has a warped sense of humor - you ask to win the lottery and they bring back the draft and your number the first one they call - Jesus be like well you won the lottery didn't ya...you got to be super specific with The Messsiah.... lol

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      I had plans for that money, you hear me? Starting with me wasting about 10% on bullshyt probably but it definitely wouldn't be on my drug dealer boyfriend.

      Sad but very true. I wish for this not to happen. But it's likely it will.

      Is the Gray family from the Caribbean? They look it. If they are impoverished islanders in America than can explain their being targeted and taken advantage of financially. Hopefully they'll get legal and financial help they need to fight any injustices against them.

    • R in NYC

      The family should use some of the money to set up a foundation or a scholarship in his name. Keep his memory alive and keep his death from being in vain.
