Prosecutors said Derrion Albert was an “innocent bystander” who ended up in the middle of a street fight between two factions of students at his school, Christian Fenger Academy High school, located on Chicago’s South Side.
When school let out at 2:50 p.m. on Thursday, Albert was on his way to the bus stop when two groups of students converged on the street, Simonton said.
The two factions, one that lived near the Altgeld Gardens housing development and one in an area known as “The Ville,” began fighting after a shooting earlier that day that police called gang-related.
Albert was approached by 16-year-old Eric Carson and another unknown person, both members of the “The Ville” faction, Simonton said. Carson struck Albert in the head with a long wooden railroad tie, and the second person punched him in the face, Simonton said.
Albert was knocked unconscious by the blows for a short period, Simonton said, but gained consciousness and quickly tried to move from the escalating street fight.
“He gained consciousness and moved a few feet away, but as he was trying to get up, he was attacked by a second group,” Simonton said.
That group, made up of five members from the opposing faction, then took their shots at Albert, Simonton said.
He was struck in the head by Riley with a railroad tie, a rectangular piece of wood used as a base for railroad tracks, Simonton said.
Once Albert was on the ground again, Shannon was seen “stomping on his head repeatedly,” Simonton said.
An amateur videotape shot by a witness, which has been broadcast nationally, showed the attack unfolding. A local TV station that received the tape turned it over to police. Video Watch graphic video of the attack »
The video shows that, as the attackers ran away, the person with the camera and several others approached Albert and carried him into a nearby building.
“Derrion, get up!” a female voice pleads on the video.
