Deputy Commissioner Kevin Davis said the stop was previously unknown to investigators. It was one of four stops the wagon made after Gray was put inside.

Before Gray was put in the van, he asked officers for an inhaler, but didn’t get one. At the first stop, Gray was put in leg cuffs because police said he had become irate. The second stop — which was only revealed Thursday — was discovered by a privately owned camera.

Police did not say whether anything happened during the stop or why it was made. Online maps show the street corner appears to be deserted with three vacant lots and a store nearby.
