2:32 am
they said police were initially unaware of an extra stop made by the police van transporting gray. they won't say why the van stopped or why they didn't learn about it until it was discovered on surveillance video. but the attorney for gray's family says this makes them even more suspicious about his death. also today, abc's wjla reported sources told them the police report contains medical evidence that a serious injury to the back of gray's head closely matches a bolt in the back of that police van. again, police won't comment saying they don't want to compromise the investigation. ryan and reena. >> thanks so much. >> police in baltimore are urging residents to use a nonemergency online system over the weekend instead of using 911 unless there's a true emergency. >> that plea comes amid growing concern about the number of officers injured in clashes with protesters. abc's steve osunsami reports. >> reporter: baltimore police are reminding everyone that cops are people, too.
