The 5 defendants were arraigned Saturday morning on aggravated assault charges. Four of the defendants have been released under heightened supervision, which means that they will have curfews and likely wear electronic monitoring devices. The fifth defendant, Reginald Phillips, will likely be released under the same terms once the court verifies he is eligible.
There will be a preliminary hearing regarding the trial on November 11.
The medical examiner has not released the cause of death for the victim, Ali Ahmed Mohammed. The medical examiner should announce a cause of death sometime early next week.
I will update on this story as more information comes out.
