“My husband was walking our child home from school. They walked past three teenage boys who were shouting and ran past the garages. The three teenage boys then pinned a guy up against the garage holding him by the neck.
They were shouting they were going to kill him. My husband said he heard them shouting to give them something. It sounded like they wanted something from him,” the woman said.
Efforts by the medics to to save him proved futile as he was pronounced dead at the scene.
