Clay County Sheriff Michelle Cook said a 13-year-old boy is now dead.

“This shouldn’t be happening,” neighbor Jerrica Hall said.

Hall took this video of the turmoil, in which you can see first responders pushing a stretcher.

Hall also said she saw the injured teens lying on the front lawn, bleeding.

“It was all teenagers. There (were) no adults involved. Even after 9 (p.m.), after these children were laid on the sidewalk bleeding, no adults,” Hall said.

We now know at least nine total boys were involved in the fight, their ages ranging from 10 to 17 years old.

Cook said two boys were inside the home when another group showed up and starting banging on the windows and doors, challenging the boys to fight.

The boys inside called their friends for “backup,” then at least three more boys drove to the house.

The two groups outside started fighting first. Cook says someone outside brought out a knife. That’s when one of the boys inside came outside with another knife.

At this point, investigators know at least two knives were involved in the fight.

“They were bleeding out. They were so small and so panicked,” Hall said.

Five were injured, and two still remain in the hospital on Sunday.

“It’s tough. It’s the week of Thanksgiving and instead of being thankful, we have a family of a 13-year-old child going to have to plan a burial, a funeral,” Cook said.

The sheriff also said there could possibly be more kids involved.

“I wish these young men would have called 911 instead of their friends, and unfortunately this morning, we have a dead child,” Cook said.

At this time, Cook said it is too early in the investigation to explore pressing charges. She also said all of the parents have been notified and are cooperating with investigators.

The Clay County School District says counseling will be offered to anyone who needs it. The 13-year-old who died was not a student in the Clay County school system.
