In the midst of protests and backlash against the Baltimore Police Department after the death of Freddie Gray, another witness video has emerged.

The new video shows the police van stopped just a block from the arrest site, reports CNN. Police stopped to re-restrain Gray after he was heard screaming in pain.

The original video shows Gray with his legs dragging as police officers take him into a police van. An autopsy previously showed that Gray?s legs weren?t broken, but his spine and voice box were severely crushed.

So far, only five of the six arresting officers have been suspended. On Wednesday, the suspended officers provided statements to investigators and insisted that force was never used in the arrest.

The officers? names were released, including their starting years:

-Lt. Brian Rice, 41, who joined the department in 1997

-Officer Caesar Goodson, 45, who joined in 1999
