The exact cause of death is unknown, but the victim's sister, Laura, confirmed with the Observer that her brother was pronounced brain dead, while Winter Park Police confirmed that he was taken off life support last night.

Winter Park Police Chief Michael Deal said during a press conference Tuesday afternoon that there are multiple suspects, some of whom are believed to be Winter Park High School students.
