Edgewater teen critically beaten

Last night a 14 year old boy was beaten on the 6300 N Paulina block in Edgewater. Three males were seen chasing the boy around 7:45pm. The assailants caught the victim and all three violently beat him and one was seen hitting him with a shiny object. The unidentified boy has a cracked scull and is hanging on to his life after the bloody beating. This comes just two days after the fatal beating of 16-year-old Derrion Albert near Fenger High School which was caught on video and outraged not only the city, but the nation. Police have not yet made any arrests, but we’re hoping they do – quickly. Our thoughts go out to this victim and his family toward a recovery.

UPDATE: As of 1pm, no one was in custody. The victim is a student @ Mather High School, and is still in critical condition – police are not able to interview him due to his condition.
