good evening. and we begin this monday night in baltimore, where there is an intense focus on several videos now captured of the same arrest. the suspect being put into the back of a police van. that suspect, freddie gray, would end up with a severed spine. he would later die. it is unclear how it happened. late today, baltimore police saying none of the officers described any use of force. you can see gray being put in the back of that van. tonight, the justice department telling abc news the civil rights division is considering opening an investigation into the death of gray while in custody. tonight, the police commissioner acknowledging this is a community on edge, with many asking, what happened while in that van? abc's david kerley is in baltimore tonight. >> reporter: tonight, new video from a police camera that still doesn't explain the arrest and death of freddie gray. this cell phone video shows him being taken to a police van in a high crime area. seven days later, the 25-year-old was dead. today, an autopsy shows he suffered a severe spinal injury.

5:33 pm
was it here where he was arrested? or was it in the van? or is it purely a medical emergency? >> i know that when mr. gray was placed inside that van, he was able to talk, he was upset. and when mr. gray was taken out of that van, he could not talk and he could not breathe. >> reporter: without answers, six baltimore police officers tonight are on suspension. the answers so far are inadequate for residents who for a second night are out protesting. city leaders calling for calm as they continue their investigation. david? >> david kerley leading us off from baltimore. david, thank you. we're going to turn to tulsa and that reserve deputy facing charges for shooting a suspect with a real gun instead of his stun gun. the fbi today clearing robert bates of any civil rights violations. he remains accused of manslaughter, shooting a suspect being held down by other deputies. the sheriff there in tulsa today saying bates was properly certified. the victim's family had claimed
