New video footage of Freddie Gray in police custody has been released. Michelle Gross, a friend of Gray, witnessed the pivotal first stop on Mount and Baker streets in Baltimore, Maryland, prior to the 25-year-old’s death (April 12).
In the video recorded by Gross’ neighbor—which can be seen here—viewers see Gray’s limp body, feet in shackles, hands in flex-cuffs, and him laying on his stomach out the back of the police wagon. Gray appears unresponsive when Gross yells out to him, “You all right?,” the Baltimore Sun reports.
Another resident witnessed the occurrence and said, “Can we get someone else out here? This is not cool. This is not cool. Do you hear me?”
When Gross initially saw what was happening, she told the Sun, “I thought his leg was just broke and that he was just going to the police station and we would hear him that afternoon.”
Video surveillance in the neighborhood hosted 16 cameras during that time, but one showing a distinct image of what occurred while Gray was in police custody has been removed:
Video from city surveillance camera #2108, mounted on top of Gilmor House, recorded part of the scene. That was one of 16 surveillance videos relating to the arrest and van trip that the Baltimore Police Department released on its YouTube website in April. But that video has since been removed while the others remain.
Police have not responded to questions about why it was removed.
The six officers involved were previously arrested, but later released on bail earlier this month, the Sun reports.
