Baltimore police released the names of six officers suspended with pay while the in-custody death of Freddie Gray is investigated.

The officers include Lieutenant Brian Rice, a member of the Baltimore Police Department since 1997. Police said Rice, 41, was the officer who first made eye contact with Gray and another man. After making eye contact, police said, Gray ran from police before he was tackled and detained.

Gray was arrested April 12 after an officer said he fled from police unprovoked, according to a police report. Police said they used no force while arresting Gray who was put into a police transport van while complaining of asthma and his detention. About a half hour later, police said, he was unresponsive and in critical condition.

Police continue to investigate what caused his injuries while witnesses at West Baltimore's Gilmor Homes, where he was arrested, say they saw him beaten.

Gray died Sunday as a result of a spinal cord injury.

Other officers involved in Gray's arrest include:

Sgt. Alicia White, 30, a member of the department since 2010; Officer Caesar Goodson, 45, who has been on the police force since 1999; Officer William Porter, 25, Officer Garrett Miller, 26; and Officer Edward Nero, 29, all joined BPD in 2012, police said.

Three of the officers were on bicycle when they arrested Gray. One of the officers is the van transport driver and two others are officers who were called to help check on Gray in the back of the van, police said.

Police did not specify each of the officers' roles in Gray's arrest and transport.
