About three weeks before Freddie Gray was chased from a West Baltimore corner by three Baltimore Police officers — the start of a fatal encounter — the office of prosecutor Marilyn Mosby asked police to target the intersection with "enhanced" drug enforcement efforts, court documents show.

"State's Attorney Mosby asked me to look into community concerns regarding drug dealing in the area of North Ave and Mount St," Joshua Rosenblatt, division chief of Mosby's Crime Strategies Unit, wrote in a March 17 email to Major Osborne Robinson, a Western District police commander.

The document was disclosed for the first time in a motion filed Tuesday in Baltimore Circuit Court by defense attorneys for the six officers being prosecuted in Gray's arrest and death. The attorneys said the email showed that Mosby should be removed from the case, the Baltimore Sun reports.
