BALTIMORE (AP) - Baltimore’s police union is accusing city officials of stonewalling requests for information about what happened during riots in the city following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the police department responded by calling the union’s claims baseless.

The union has requested all communications between City Hall and police officials during the riots. The union said in a statement Tuesday that the failure to release the information has prevented officers from preparing for any future unrest.

Rawlings-Blake said in a statement that the city is in the midst of an “extensive review” of the riot response. She says “the public will know the full truth of what happened” and that the record will show she never ordered officers to “stand down” during the riots.
