Police detective testifies in Freddie Gray trial

BALTIMORE (AP) — A detective who investigated Freddie Gray's injuries after his neck was broken in the back of a Baltimore police van is set to provide more testimony in the trial of one of six officers charged in Gray's death.

Detective Syreeta Teel began testifying for the state Thursday afternoon. The trial resumes Friday.

Teel testified she spoke with defendant William Porter in the shock trauma unit of a hospital where Gray was taken after he was found unresponsive in the back of the van. She also spoke with a hospital administrator before returning to West Baltimore to interview witnesses.

Teel was one of eight witnesses called Thursday, the second day of testimony.


This story has been corrected to show Teel saw Porter at the hospital, not the police station.
