43-year-old Christopher Wright was brutally beaten to death by a pack of middle schoolers, and reportedly some adults, who followed his 14-year-old home demanding to continue a fight that started at school.
According to the family, Wright came out of the house to protect his son and was viciously beaten to death.
According to local news, Wright stepped out of his house and was jumped by the group, which included teenagers and adults, and was bashed into the sidewalk.
Here's some details from his fiancée, Tracy Karopchinsky:
"Chris came out to tell them, like, he's not coming out here to fight, and they threatened at one point to come in and get him, and then they said, 'If he's not going to fight, then you're going to fight,'" Karopchinsky told 11 News.
Wright was taken to Shock Trauma, where he died Saturday from a traumatic brain injury.
"Just looking at the damage that was done to him, that wasn't just punching that did that. Like, there's no way that punching did that. The damage was done before the ambulance ever took him away. I mean, he'd had a seizure. It was done. There was nothing that the hospital could do," Karopchinsky told 11 News.
What in the world is happening that teens are following kids home and killing people over a teenage fight?
The security cameras from Wright's home caught the attack, as well as cameras from a neighbor's house.
"I was at Shock Trauma, and initially, my dad and I tried to go onto the camera to look, and the first video that comes up is my 12-year-old son screaming, 'Daddy, daddy, daddy,' and running out of the house into the street to go help his dad. And, I couldn't watch anymore after that. I just couldn't," Karopchinsky told 11 News.
"It's everywhere," Karopchinsky said of the violence in schools and cities gripping the nation.
Here's an interview with her:
The police have listed the suspects but, as of this report, no arrests have been made yet in what police are calling a homicide.
Police have said they are treating the incident as a homicide and have asked anyone with information to contact them. Police listed the suspects as three to four White males in their mid-20s to mid-30s in age. Anne Arundel County Police said there have been no updates to the case and no arrests made as of Wednesday.
We can only pray that justice is done and that God comforts this family after this senseless loss of life.
America is in a bad place.
