(NBC News) The Justice Department announced Tuesday it will conduct its own investigation into how Freddie Gray suffered a fatal spinal cord injury while in Baltimore police custody.
On Monday police released a timeline of the arrest.
Gray was taken into custody around 8:40 a.m., seen in cell phone video provided by his family’s attorney.
Sometime between the arrest and an hour later when paramedics were called, Gray’s spine was nearly severed.
