Winter Park Police have confirmed that a 15-year-old boy who was attacked and beaten in downtown Winter Park this weekend was taken off life support Monday night.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Lt. Pam Marcum confirmed the news ahead of a press conference this afternoon.


Winter Park Police identified the incident as an "altercation" and the weapon as "hands/feet/fist" in a redacted police report.

The boy was attacked at Central Park near Park Avenue and Morse Boulevard at 10 p.m. Saturday night.

He had moved here from Brazil a year ago. Upon learning of the news on social media, the Brazilian consulate contacted the Winter Park Police Department. 

Neither the victim nor the assailants have been identified.
