Report: Man Near Death After KORN Show

WSBTV.com has issued the following report:

A melee at a metro Atlanta concert ends with a man fighting for his life — and now his family wants answers.

A family of a man can't understand how a night of fun at a concert could end with him being brain dead.

It happened [on Sunday, July 30] at the Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater during a concert by the group KORN. Police say 30-year-old Andy Richardson was beaten by two other concert-goers.

Homicide investigators are looking into this beating. At the same time, Andy Richardson is in very critical condition and his mother says it doesn't look good. She's trying to figure out how a night of fun could end with her son near death.

"Can you imagine your child goes to a concert and be killed for it, because of people out there fighting to have a quote unquote good time?" says Gloria Richardson.

Gloria is still trying to comprehend how her 30-year-old son, Andy, ended up brain-dead after he was attacked during a concert by the group KORN at the Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheater. She also can't understand how the attackers got away.

"And I'm angry. I'm very angry. Why were the police not there to stop them," says Gloria.

"We were all enjoying the concert, we were having a good time, until these two guys came around," recalls Andy's friend, Edgar Arellano.

Arellano says it all started after the two men were mosh-pitting.

"A mosh pit is just jumping around and pushing each other," explains Arellano.
