"'Then, they said that if he’s not going to fight, then you’re going to fight us.
Just looking at the damage that was done to him, that wasn’t just punching that did that. ... I mean, the damage was done before the ambulance ever took him away. He had had a seizure.'
Wright was badly beaten by the group, his fiancée says. He was taken to a trauma center, where he was pronounced dead Saturday from a traumatic brain injury."
Police say charges could be brought against the three teenagers and two adults involved in the beating.
