Brawl Video Surfaces

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Sep 27, 2009 4:15PM

Video of a violent brawl that resulted in the death of one teen was caught on tape and FOX 32 obtained the video caught on a cell phone camera. Four students were injured and 16-year-old Derrion Albert was killed in the brawl. Be warned, the footage is pretty graphic and harrowing. At about 48 seconds in, one student - no word if it's Albert - is beaten over the head with a two by four. Later in the video, Albert's body is seen but blurred out of the video by Fox, as others rush to his aid and carry his body out of the way.
