Three teenagers have been arrested and charged as adults with first-degree murder in the beating death of a 16-year-old honor student as he walked home from school last Thursday.

The victim, Derrion Albert, was beaten to death during a fight between two gangs that broke out on the street.

The three teens were scheduled to be arraigned today.

Meanwhile, police are continuing to investigate the killing, including video allegedly taken by a person at the scene, the Associated Press reports.

The video, which shows several people beating and stomping a person believed to Albert, has been turned over to police.
