15-year-old Michael Brewer was intentionally set on fire over $40 that was owed for a video game. Five teens, all under the age of 18, threw a jug of what police said was rubbing alcohol on the teen and lit him on fire.
Brewer, who is currently in critical condition, suffered second-degree burns over 80% of his body and is expected to be in the hospital for a minimum of five weeks, with a long recovery after that.
Three youths were arrested just a few hours after the incident on Monday night, and the other two were arrested on Tuesday. Officers stated that a few of them were laughing about the incident.
