A Las Vegas teenager reportedly died last week after he was severely beaten by a violent mob of about 15 attackers near a local high school.
Jonathan Lewis Jr., a 17-year-old student of Rancho High School, died on Tuesday at University Medical Center while receiving treatment for injuries he suffered during the attack. His father said his son was hospitalized and put on life support until he eventually passed away due to his injuries.
“We’re all just trying to process this,” Jonathan Lewis Sr. told local media. “The whole family is in shock.”
Lewis, 38, said on a GoFundMe page that, from his understanding, a smaller friend of Lewis Jr. had an item stolen by a group of 15 who then threw the boy in a trash can.
