The Washington Post report that Freddie Gray may have intentionally tried to injure himself while in police custody is stirring controversy and re-igniting unrest through Baltimore.

In the report, a prisoner who rode in the same police van as Gray, although he could not see him, says he could hear Gray “banging against the walls.”

A state and federal investigation into Gray’s arrest and how he sustained his injuries continues.

More information was released and new questions raised Thursday in the death of Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old who was severely injured and later died after being arrested by Baltimore police.

Investigators revealed the transport van gray was riding in made a previously unknown stop the day he was arrested.

“This new stop was discovered from a privately owned camera,” said Baltimore Deputy Police Commissioner Kevin Davis.

Citing the integrity of the process, it’s the only information police shared publicly after turning over initial results of their investigation into Gray’s death to the state’s attorney.

“Making sure that we look and overturn every rock is more important that just coming forth and giving a document,” said Police Commissioner Anthony Batts.

A charging document obtained by NBC News indicates after fleeing from officers gray was apprehended “without force” taken into custody for alleged possession of a “switchblade knife.”
