Citizen video of Baltimore Police taking a man believed to be Freddie Gray into custody in the Gilmor Homes area on April 12. After being arrested the man was hospitalized in critical condition. A week later, he died.
Baltimore police on Thursday released a basic timeline of an arrest near Gilmore Homes this week that left a man critically injured, but the agency still did not say how he was hurt or why he was stopped.
Freddie Gray, 27, remains comatose in a hospital, where he underwent double surgery on his spine and voice box Tuesday, his stepfather said.
According to the Police Department's timeline:
•Four officers on bicycles attempted to stop him in the 1600 block of W. North Ave. at 8:39 a.m. Sunday, and he ran from them. "Officers are working in an area with a history of drug dealing and violence," the police timeline said.
•A minute later, they caught and arrested him in the 1700 block of Pressbury St. and requested a police van.
•The officers put him in the van when it arrived, then stopped at 8:54 a.m. at the intersection of Mount and Baker streets nearby to put more restraints on him. "Video evidence indicates the suspect is conscious and speaking at this time," police said.
•Paramedics were called to the Western District police station to take him to the hospital.
The cause of the man's injuries and why he initially was stopped is under an internal investigation, police said. The four officers have been assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome.
