Fire department personnel treated the victim, 43-year-old Christopher Wright, at the scene before he was transported to a local trauma center for treatment. He died from his injuries on May 20.
According to authorities, the group of suspects arrived at Wright’s home “in reference to an earlier altercation.”
Wright was outside his home when he was confronted by three teens and two adults, WBAL-TV reported. The group was looking for his fiancée’s 14-year-old son, who had gotten in a fight with another teen at Brooklyn Park Middle School earlier that day.
Wright told the group that the boy was not going to come outside to fight. The group then told him, “If he’s not going to fight, then you’re going to fight and proceeded to attack him,” Wright’s fiancée, Tracy Karopchinsky, told WBAL-TV.
