According to his family, a father in Maryland was m*rdered outside of his home while defending his kids from a brawl that started at his son’s middle school.
Tracy Karopchinsky, Christopher Wright’s fiancée, claims that the 43-year-old was ki!!ed when a brawl at Brooklyn Park Middle School was brought to his door.
She claims her 14-year-old son engaged in a physical altercation with another teen on Friday afternoon at school.
She claims that later on that day, three teenagers and two adults came to her house to fight her son. Wright reportedly went outside and informed the group that the 14-year-old would not be coming out to engage in combat.
“Then, they said that if he’s not going to fight, then you’re going to fight us,” Karopchinsky stated.
Wright’s fiancée claims that the group severely beat him. He was taken to a trauma center, where he suffered a traumatic brain injury and was later declared deἀd on Saturday.
“Just looking at the damage that was done to him, that wasn’t just punching that did that. … I mean, the damage was done before the ambulance ever took him away. He had had a seizure. It was done. There was nothing that the hospital could do,” according to Karopchinsky.
Security cameras owned by the victim and a neighbor both captured the incident.
“My dad and I tried to go on to the camera to look, and the first video that comes up is my 12-year-old son screaming, ‘Daddy, Daddy, Daddy’ and running out of the house to go into the street and help his dad. I couldn’t watch anymore after that. I just couldn’t,” admitted Karopchinksy.
Officials from the school confirmed the altercation between the teens and claimed they are working to resolve it. They are currently collaborating with police on the inquiry.

Charges against the parties involved, according to the police, may be brought.
According to Marc Limansky, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police, “Anyone who assisted or abetted or was an accomplice of the main suspect or the primary suspect in this incident would be culpable.”
Parents need to take action because teen violence has reached an unacceptable level, says Karopchinsky.
“They didn’t just ruin our lives. Their lives are going to be changed forever. Their parents’ lives are going to be changed forever, and nobody thinks about that just from a fight. It’s everywhere, and somewhere, we as parents, are failing these children. … It’s not the school’s responsibility. It’s our responsibility,” she told.
She continues that Wright was a devoted father who enjoyed gardening and the stars. The family will hold his memorial candlelight vigil.
Anyone with information about the case is being urged to contact the police.
