The police officers involved in the fatal shooting were identified by the New York Daily News as Sgt. Mourad Mourad and Jovaniel Cordova.
Gray's mother has come out saying that she does not believe that her son did anything to warrant being shot, and the officers that shot him should be off the streets.
Some members of the community are calling for an independent investigation into Gray's death.
Both officers involved in the shooting are on administrative duty while the NYPD continues its investigation.
