Blood remains splattered Monday afternoon on the front porch of the duplex at 2021 N. 21st Lane, where Young was chased by a mob of youths and severely beaten with bats, shovels and boards, police said.
A mob of nearly 20 kids beat a man brain dead Sunday night after he confronted them for throwing an egg at him and punched one teen in the mouth, police said.
Three suspects, 10, 13 and 14 years old, were in custody Monday, police said. The victim, Charlie Young Jr., 36, remained on life support.
Police said the group chased Young onto the porch of a house at 2021 N. 21st Lane and used bats, shovels and boards to pummel him in an attack that left blood splattered floor to ceiling.
At one point, Young forced his way into the lower unit in a desperate bid for safety, the landlord said, but the kids dragged him back outside, where the beating continued until police responded to a neighbor's 911 call.
