BALTIMORE (AP) — A camera outside a small grocery store in Baltimore apparently recorded a previously unknown stop that happened while Freddie Gray was inside a prison van. The store owner, who speaks Korean, told The Associated Press that two police officers visited his store last week and later made a copy of the surveillance video. Police revealed today that they had learned about the stop. Previously, police had said the van stopped only three times, including to put leg cuffs on Gray and to pick up another prisoner. Gray was critically injured during his arrest and died a week later. Police have not explained his spinal injury.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The prosecutor who is handling the case of Freddie Gray is asking the public to remain patient and peaceful as she conducts an investigation. Marilyn Mosby said in a statement today that she has received the investigative file from police, and her office has also been conducting its own independent investigation. She'll decide whether any charges are warranted for six officers who were involved in the arrest and transport of Gray. The officers have been suspended with pay.

Earlier this week, Iranian naval vessels reportedly fired warning shots near a cargo ship carrying the Marshall Islands flag, and Iran has detained that ship and its crew.
