( 4UMF NEWS ) Freddie Gray’s Mother Attempts Suicide:

The mother of a black Baltimore man whose death in police custody prompted charges against police officers has attempted suicide, WJZ television is reporting.

Gloria Darden, the mother of Freddie Gray, was undergoing psychiatric evaluation Thursday evening after the Wednesday evening suicide attempt, WJZ reported, citing multiple sources.

Darden suffered superficial wounds in the attempt and was taken to a nearby hospital, but no surgery or stitches were necessary, according to WJZ.

Gray, 25, suffered injuries while in police custody following an April 12 arrest and died in a hospital a week later. The incident prompted widespread protests in Baltimore and in other cities.

In September, Baltimore agreed to pay Gray’s family $6.4 million to settle civil litigation.
