Chicago police are still investigating the gang fight that erupted Thursday in Roseland that resulted in the death of 16-year-old Fenger High School student Derrion Albert.

Albert was killed in a melee near the school that police believe is a continuation of ongoing tensions between Fenger students that are members of rival gangs.

An amateur video of the brawl shows dozens of people punching, kicking and swinging wooden boards in the street. Albert was struck by blows from one of those boards, Fox Chicago reports, and the video obtained by Fox shows a person getting hit with a board and then stomped on after falling to the ground.

As people rush to help the injured person, a voice can be heard on the video yelling, "Derrion, get up!"




Albert's mom said witnesses told her that her son "trying to help another student and kind of got mixed in with the crowd of the fight and he was hit."

A memorial and march planned for Sunday was rescheduled for Monday at 1 p.m., the Tribune reports.

UPDATE: Police are questioning four people in connection with Albert's death, Fox Chicago reported late Sunday night.

The student who hit Albert with a board is in custody, Fox reports, as police try to figure out why Albert, an honor student whom family and friends said was not involved with a gang, was killed.

Meanwhile, police beefed up security around Fenger Monday as students returned to school the week after the melee that led to Albert's death.

"We want to provide reassurance to the public that there's a police presence and they can feel safe in the neighborhood and kids can feel safe at school," the Tribune quoted Morgan Park District Commander Michael Kuemmeth as saying.

CB sending indirect shots at RiRi?

After hearing  the song “Famous Girl.” a few times.(yes i have it on repeat lol) some of the lines stuck out to me a lil bit that sounded a lil indirect.  the lines are as follows:

"Since I thought I found my woman/ There were other guys who thought the same thing about it/ Like damn, you let me down, down, down/ 'Cause you're famous, girl, for breaking hearts."




"Drake would say that you're the best he ever had. Rumors come and go but you keep a shadow. Everywhere you go it follows."


"Sorry B i dont where no halo/ u were the first to play the game though/Sorry i busts the windows out your car"


"Too much pressure I wish I was frozen. Seems we lost our way. I hope you're happy being famous girl."

Bam's Commentary: Maybe its just me idk but this is just my thoughts. But that Sorry B line gets me cause rumor has it that he did bust the window out of RiRi car in barbados. plus if ya listen he says watch the blogs talk about this one. j…
