Gray’s death comes a week after his arrest and just hours after a protest was held at Baltimore police headquarters.
Gray’s stepfather, Richard Shipley, who has acted as a family spokesperson since the incident, confirmed that his stepson passed away Sunday
“He’s gone,” Shipley said. “What else is there to say?”
A Shock Trauma spokeswoman confirmed Gray’s death, but could not provide any further details Sunday morning.
Protests are slated to continue Sunday, one group said.
It’s unclear how Gray, 27, was injured, and police have not released any documents or reports relating to the case.
