Beating Death Of Derrion Albert, 16, Caught On Video

Chicago police are still investigating the gang fight that erupted Thursday in Roseland that resulted in the death of 16-year-old Fenger High School student Derrion Albert.
Albert was killed in a melee near the school that police believe is a continuation of ongoing tensions between Fenger students that are members of rival gangs.

An amateur video of the brawl shows dozens of people punching, kicking and swinging wooden boards in the street. Albert was struck by blows from one of those boards, Fox Chicago reports, and the video obtained by Fox shows a person getting hit with a board and then stomped on after falling to the ground.

As people rush to help the injured person, a voice can be heard on the video yelling, "Derrion, get up!"

Albert's mom said witnesses told her that her son "trying to help another student and kind of got mixed in with the crowd of the fight and he was hit."

A memorial and march planned for Sunday was rescheduled for Monday at 1 p.m., the Tribune reports.

Police are questioning four people in connection with Albert's death, Fox Chicago reported late Sunday night.

The student who hit Albert with a board is in custody, Fox reports, as police try to figure out why Albert, an honor student whom family and friends said was not involved with a gang, was killed.

Meanwhile, police beefed up security around Fenger Monday as students returned to school the week after the melee that led to Albert's death.

"We want to provide reassurance to the public that there's a police presence and they can feel safe in the neighborhood and kids can feel safe at school," the Tribune quoted Morgan Park District Commander Michael Kuemmeth as saying.

We make all the excuses for these young monsters, we blame even the community and even the president sometimes and not these young criminals who don't even respect nobody. Just think about it and if that was your son how would you feel as a mother or father. To know these monsters took your son's life. My condolences goes out to the family of derrion R.I.P. son God loves you.

I blame it on us, adults...I am not surprised at all this killing of each other is an everyday thing in the city...the question is, just who is raising these children...some are going to do what they want to do, but we have to try...it starts with the person it the mirror...
