The mother of Freddie Gray, whose death in the custody of Baltimore police ignited protests in the city and around the nation this spring, reportedly tried to commit suicide Wednesday night, according to The New York Daily News.
Gloria Darden reportedly “sustained superficial wounds and was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation after the suicide attempt,” the report says.
Gray, 25, was arrested April 12 on questionable charges, and was injured when he was forced to ride without a seatbelt in a police transport van. He died a week later, and the family recently received a settlement of $6.4 million from the city as a result of the death.
Details about just what happened on Wednesday remain unclear. And hours after the incident, the family’s attorney, William H. Murphy, Jr. tweeted a statement requesting privacy.
Still, Darden has received an outpouring of sympathy and support from some Twitter users.
We also wish her well.
