Statement From Governor Larry Hogan

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement:

“I cannot begin to understand the level of heartbreak and pain felt by the family of Mr. Freddie Gray. My thoughts and prayers are with them and the entire Baltimore community as we grieve this tragic loss. While Mr. Gray’s family and our community mourns, I also fully understand, and appreciate, the peaceful expressions of frustration displayed in the city. To date, the nature of these demonstrations have been a testament to Baltimore’s strong character and our common commitment to peace and justice. It is my hope that events planned for this weekend continue to reflect positively on the community.”
