Baltimore Mistrial

The mayor in the eastern U.S. city of Baltimore is urging people to remain calm following the mistrial of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray. A day after the jury failed to reach a verdict in the trial of Officer William Porter, a judge on Thursday is set to meet with the prosecutor and Porter's attorney to discuss a retrial. Gray's family is urging the state's attorney to retry the police officer. VOA’s Vincent Makori reports.
