4:02 am
they still could make no progress toward a verdict on any of the four charges against officer william porter for the death of 25-year-old gray. gray died after suffering a severe spinal injury in police custody back in april. his death sparking weeks of violent protests. prosecutors say porter refused to put his seat belt on gray when he was transported in the back of this police van and ignored gray's repeated requests for medical help. >> i hope that we do get a conviction somewhere because freddie is dead and someone needs to be convicted. >> reporter: whether prosecutors will force porter to take the stand again in a retrial is not yet known. some legal analysts speculate he might be given immunity for his testimony against the five other officers who are also facing charges and whose cases could be affected by the prosecution's failure in this first attempt. in the meantime, baltimore leaders and gray's family are urging a peaceful response.
4:03 am

4:06 am
social media by either of them at that period of time and thereafter reflecting their commitment to jihad or to martyrdom. >> investigators have also found no evidence that the couple was part of a larger terror cell or was being directed by terrorists overseas. in the meantime, president obama is planning to visit san bernardino on friday. he'll hold a private meeting with shooting victims and the families of those killed before continuing on to hawaii for his family holiday vacation. >> that snowstorm that's dumped more than two feet of snow in the higher elevations of the rockies has now moved to the upper midwest. the snowplows were out in force in parts of minnesota yesterday as the snow piled up on the roads making driving in some areas treacherous. and as you can see, the latest radar shows that storm system marching eastward blanketing nearly the entire eastern third of the u.s. bringing more snow today to the upper midwest and rain in the southeast.
