BALTIMORE (AP) — Fellow police officers are testifying at a disciplinary hearing for the Baltimore police officer who drove the van in which a 25-year-old black man, Freddie Gray, suffered a fatal injury.

The hearing is expected to continue Wednesday for Officer Caesar Goodson.

The police department is seeking to fire Goodson for violating police policies during the ride in which Gray was injured after his arrest in April 2015. The department says Goodson failed to fasten Gray in a seatbelt and didn't take him to a hospital when he requested care.

Officer Edward Nero testified Tuesday that Gray "was not showing any signs of a medical emergency" when he was first arrested and placed in the van.

The disciplinary hearing is expected to last into next week.

Goodson was acquitted of criminal charges last year.
