ATTACK.>>FREDERICK COUNTY

INCIDENTS HAPPENED AT THE GREAT
FREDERICK FAIR ONE CAPTURED BY A
PERSON RIDING ON A FERRIS WHEEL. WHAT PROSECUTORS ARE PURSUING IS
THE DEADLY ASSAULT THAT CLAIMED
THE LIFE OF 59-YEAR-OLD JOHN

PARTICULAR CASE THAT WOULD LEAD
ANYONE TO BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS
AN INTENT TO KILL, AN INTENT TO
MURDER THE VICTIM.>>A 15-YEAR-OLD AND HIS
16-YEAR-OLD BROTHER ARE CHARGED
WITH ASSAULT A FREDERICK COUNTY

PENDING THEIR NEXT COURT HEARING. PROSECUTORS TOLD JUDGE JULIE
STEVENS SOLT A GROUP OF TEENS AT
THE FAIR BEGAN FOLLOWING THE
VICTIM AFTER THE 16-YEAR-OLD
ASKED FOR A DOLLAR.>>THIS WAS OVER HIM ASKING FOR
A DOLLAR BILL. OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS SOME
DIALOGUE THAT OCCURRED AFTER
THAT AND IT WAS NEGATIVE, WHO
SAID WHAT WE DO NOT KNOW AT THIS
POINT. BARRY: INVESTIGATORS SAY WEED
WAS HIT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD
HE TURNED AROUND AND SQUARED OFF
WITH THE 16-YEAR-OLD. A SHORT TIME LATER THE
15-YEAR-OLD SUCKER PUNCHED WEED
WHO FELL TO THE GROUND
UNCONSCIOUS, THE 16 YEAR THEN
SPIT ON HIM. WEED DIED THE NEXT DAY. PROSECUTORS SAY THE 15-YEAR-OLD
COULD ALSO FACE A CHARGE OF
MANSLAUGHTER AND COULD BE MOVED
TO ADULT COURT.>>RIGHT NOW WHAT WE KNOW IS IT
WAS OVER A DOLLAR BILL. IT WAS NOT OVER RACE. AGAIN, THAT’S A QUESTION WE HAVE
AS WELL. WE ARE GOING TO PURSUE THAT, IF
THE FACTS WARRANT A CHARGE OF A
HATE CRIME WE WILL CHARGE HIM. THEY DO NOT, WE ARE NOT GOING TO
TRY TO TASTE SOMETHING THAT’S
NOT EXIST.>>THE FATHER AND MOTHER OF THE
TWO TEENS PLEADED FOR THE SONS
CALLING THEM GOOD KIDS WITH NO
VIOLENT HISTORY WHO MADE A
MISTAKE.>>THERE ARE PLENTY OF TIMES
WHEN GOOD PEOPLE MAKE BAD
DECISIONS. BUT WHEN THEY RESULT IN SOME AT
HIS DEATH, YOU GET PUNISHED. BARRY: PROSECUTORS SAY THE
ENTIRE INCIDENT LASTED JUST A
FEW MINUTES. THE TEEN BROTHERS ARE DUE BACK
