Lien, via his Twitter handle @Courtartist, has posted sketches of the jury selection and other scenes inside the downtown courthouse.

Gray, 25, died in April after being arrested in West Baltimore. His arrest was followed by protests, destruction, looting and arson in Baltimore's streets.

The six officers were indicted on May 1.

Officer William Porter is the first officer to go on trial. The other five officers are scheduled to appear in court in 2016.
