BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore’s mayor and police commissioner promise a thorough investigation into the death of a man injured while in police custody.
At a news conference following the death Sunday of Freddie Gray, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she has the same questions as reporters, including: how was Gray hurt? Did authorities follow proper procedures? What are the next steps?
Four officers stopped Gray a week ago and put him into a van. After Gray arrived at a police station, an ambulance was called to treat him. He was taken to a hospital with what relatives called spinal injuries.
Police Commissioner Anthony Batts says the case will be investigated by the department, an independent review board and the city prosecutor.
