This was revealed by 11 News, a local NBC News affiliate. CBS News: Police in Baltimore and Anne Arundel said that three or four white guys in their mid-20s to mid-30s did the crimes.
Wright’s family told CBS News Baltimore that the beating was in response to the fight at school.
“Chris came out to tell them, like, he’s not coming out here to fight, and at one point they threatened 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. She said all three of her kids were at home at the time.
The incident was caught on Wright’s security cams, according to 11 News. The beating was also caught on camera by a neighbor.
