In sad news, the mother of Freddie Gray attempted suicide earlier this week.

CBS Baltimore reports:

WJZ has confirmed with multiple sources that Gloria Darden, the mother of Freddie Gray, tried to take her own life late Wednesday night.

The call came in around 9:35 p.m. Wednesday for a person needing medical attention in North Baltimore.

Sources tell WJZ that’s where Gloria Darden, the mother of Freddie Gray, attempted suicide and sustained superficial wounds.

Neighbors watched as first responders arrived on scene.

“I seen the police and ambulance right there. They were taking the lady out and putting her on the stretcher bed,” said Diana Bruce, North Baltimore.

Sources say Gray’s mother was taken from that North Baltimore neighborhood to a nearby hospital, where no surgery or stitches were needed.

Billy Murphy, the lawyer for the Gray family, released a statement Thursday night, saying in part: “…she is still mourning the loss of her son. The family asks that you continue to pray for her and for them.”

Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested back on April 12. He was critically injured when taken into police custody and died a week later, triggering unrest throughout the city.

While grieving, Gray’s mother wanted nothing but peace.

“I want you to get justice for my son, but don’t do it like this here,” she said.

Just weeks ago, the city of Baltimore awarded Gray’s family $6.4 million to settle civil claims.

“Money won’t bring back Freddie Gray,” Murphy said in September.

The six officers charged with Gray’s death will be tried separately over the course of the next five months. The first trial is slated for November 30.

Sources say Gray’s mother is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.

      That’s because they don’t want to. BLM doesn’t mean ONLY black lives matter and no others, but that black lives matter also and no less than others, and ALL should recognize that, especially the “powers that be”. Whether people want to recognize or disparage the BLM group, they have made a profound impact, they have brought awareness concerning the countless blacks murdered at the hands of white police officers and that it will no longer be tolerated. That’s basically their ONLY mission.

  1. Now how many of us here in B more predicted this in a family full of addicts?? So the Mosby/Mayor anti riot payout didn’t include a mommy suicide prevention clause?? I guess money doesn’t make the families of drug dealing criminals happy when kids are being murdered daily with no marches, anger nothing! Her suicide attempt is why BLM is a media exploited JOKE! Wait maybe she knows the officers will be acquitted since most are mad about the payout but no rec centers etc.

    • Oh stop it. BLM is good for those who really out there to do good work and really want to see a change. Stopping trying to mix everything in one bowl. This woman has issues. BLM is about seeing justice BEYOND Freddie Gray and others; and if you are limiting BLM to just this woman, then you are missing the whole point.

      “…Now how many of us here in B more” or “…I could afford to get the h@ out of B more” Did you move back? I thought you got the h@ out of B more, on your previous posts.

      You can’t be as stupid as you sound, criminal. Who takes a ride in a police van just because.
      You said…”I rode in one of those vans and I thought it was B more’s raggedy azzz streets but then I wasn’t a drug dealing criminal looking for a medical payout! What the f%ck does one have to do with the other? You don’t even know, just spouting stupid shit because it’s Friday.

      Stupid…do you even know what you wrote? You thought it was the raggedy ass streets, but it wasn’t. It really was the police trying to kill your dumb ass and you didn’t even know it. Then you say, ” you weren’t a drug dealing criminal looking for a payout.” Sure you were, if it ever happened. IMO, I believe your whole persona is a total lie. But okay, I’ll play along.

      Freddy wasn’t trying to hitch a ride with those criminals in blue just to be killed to make his family rich.

      Always talking about getting out of Bmore, then in the next sentence, “Now how many of us here in B more …” You never left Bmore and you’re probably still living in that raggedy ass row house you grew up in, so go somewhere and STFU! For everyone else…have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks to God she didn’t pass away. The headline indeed needs to be corrected. Upon seeing the headline, I became devastated! I hope Ms. Gray gets well taken care of health wise; and that she and the family get the justice they deserve; and Freddy Gray will rest in peace.

    • Did you see the interview on CBS This Morning with the mother who snatched her son out of riots? She looked so depressed and defeated that after all that media exploited attention her six kids and her and still in the ghetto poor (this idiot actually believed the politicians I bet)!!! She was watching her words as well because she knows where she lives! Criminals get more respect than all the children slaughtered in B more lately. People are mad about the payout and I bet the officers walk which they should. I rode in one of those vans and I thought it was B more’s raggedy azzz streets but then I wasn’t a drug dealing criminal looking for a medical payout! I could afford to get the h@ out of B more but I feel sad for all those kids stuck in a vicious cycle being exploited!!!

    Wrong word. “Attempts” is the correct word. I’m glad I didn’t depend on the headline, as I sometimes do, but I wanted to know because I feel for that family and I’ve been praying for them.
