A Savannah, Ga., company has unveiled a new line of T-shirts to support the six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

The black T-shirts which come in long-sleeve, short-sleeve, moisture-wicking or hoodie, feature the design of an American flag with an embedded silhouette of the Baltimore skyline and the words: "Sometimes there is Justice. Sometimes there is Just Us. Support the 6."

The designer of the shirt could not be verified, and it was unclear where the proceeds of the shirts were going. Nine Line Apparel, the company selling the shirts, did not immediately return a phone call or email. The Baltimore police union said it was not responsible for the shirts.

"Naturally, any monies that any one, or any group, wishes to donate is welcome; however, we are not working with any merchandise purveyors," union spokeswoman Kim Deachilla said in an email.

The Baltimore police department did not immediately respond to an email asking whether the agency supported the shirts.

On May 1, Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby charged six officers who were involved in the arrest of Gray with charges ranging from second-degree murder to misconduct in office. Gray was arrested outside Gilmor Homes in West Baltimore after he ran unprovoked from police. He was handcuffed and placed into a police transport van, where Mosby said he suffered a spinal injury. He died on April 19, and his death sparked rioting and days of protest across Baltimore.

Baltimore police union officials said Mosby rushed to judgment while the officers' attorneys have asked a judge to throw out the charges because of conflict of interests they say Mosby and her office has, as well as "overzealous prosecution" that doesn't fit the facts of Gray's arrest and detainment.
