BALTIMORE, Md. (WJLA) —
According to WJLA, an investigation into the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray has found no evidence that his fatal injuries were caused during the arrest by police officers, stated multiple law enforcement sources.
The sources spoke to ABC 7 News after being briefed on the findings of a police report turned over to prosecutors on Thursday.
Sources said the medical examiner found Gray’s most serious injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the police transport van, apparently breaking his neck, states ABC 7.
A head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van, states ABC 7.
Details surrounding exactly what caused Gray to slam into the back of the van was unclear. The officer driving the van has yet to give a statement to authorities. It’s also unclear whether Gray’s head injury was voluntary or was a result of some other action.
CNN and other sources have claimed Freddie Gray was not buckled in to the transport van by police officers.
