The Baltimore man whose death in police custody sparked protests and riots was killed when his head slammed into ​a bolt in ​the back of a police van he was riding in – and he was not injured during the arrest itself, a new report said Thursday.

The probe into Freddie Gray’s death found no evidence that his fatal spinal cord injuries were caused during the arrest, which was videotaped, ABC7​ WJLA reported, citing multiple sources.

The sources had been briefed on the findings of a police report turned over to prosecutors on Thursday as well as preliminary findings made by the medical examiner’s office.

Sources said the medical examiner found Gray’s catastrophic injury was caused when he slammed into the back of the police transport van, apparently breaking his neck; a head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van, the station reported.

Details surrounding exactly what caused Gray to slam into the back of the van was unclear. The officer driving the van has yet to give a statement to authorities.

It’s also unclear whether Gray’s head injury was voluntary or was a result of some other action.
