Mapping Freddie Gray's deadly 45 minutes in the back of a police van

Posted on Thursday, April 30th, 2015




When police officers shoved a black Baltimore resident named Freddie Gray into the back of a van on the morning of April 12, one of his legs appeared limp but he was able to speak. On a video, he can be heard screaming in pain.

By the time officers transferred Gray to Shock Trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the 25-year-old had a smashed voice box and was apparently fighting for his life.

Gray died a week later, and Baltimore residents have led protest against police brutality ever since — some erupting into riots featuring looting and fires
