BALTIMORE (AP) - A police disciplinary board has cleared a Baltimore officer in a review of the death of a 25-year-old black man whose neck was broken in a police van.

The three-member panel ruled Friday that Lt. Brian Rice was not guilty on all charges. Rice is the highest ranking officer involved in the arrest and van transport of Freddie Gray in April 2015.

Gray died of a spinal cord injury a week after he was injured, setting off Baltimore's worst riots in decades. The unrest forced Maryland to bring in the National Guard.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware's largest city has voted down a proposal to create a gun offender registry.

The News Journal reported Thursday that Wilmington's city council defeated the measure after a contentious discussion.

The Gun Offender Registration Act would have required all city residents convicted of gun crimes in Delaware to register with the Wilmington Police Department.  Those who fail to comply would face fines and jail time.
