Fire department releases medical response timeline in Gray case – Baltimore Sun

The Baltimore Fire Department first received a call for an “unconscious male” at the Western District police station at 9:26 a.m. on April 12, according to a new timeline provided by the department on its response in the Freddie Gray case.

A medic unit arrived at the Western District at 9:33 a.m., within national response standards, and paramedics were on the scene providing “patient care” until their departure for Maryland Shock Trauma Center at 9:54 a.m., said Roman Clark, a fire department spokesman.

Clark said he could not disclose the kind of care Gray received during the medics’ 21 minutes at the police station because of federal patient confidentiality laws.

The medic unit arrived at Shock Trauma at 10 a.m., he said.

Gray sustained a spinal injury to his neck sometime after being taken into custody by Baltimore Police, and died a week after being admitted to Shock Trauma.

His death has sparked protests against police brutality across the city.
