Basketball game turns into brawl

EVERGREEN, AL. (WSFA) - A basketball game in South Alabama turned into an all out brawl earlier this week. One person was sent to the hospital, three others were taken to jail.

The violent video shows six men on a basketball court beating a man they've surrounded. Another person off camera is heard screaming "kick him!"

The beating took place at the old Evergreen High School gym.  Police tell WSFA 12 News the victim made every effort to avoid the fight, but acted in self defense when the first two attacked him. The fight quickly escalated as four others joined in.

Officers arrested 37-year-old Mark Gill, 28-year-old Christopher Ingram and 26-year-old Derrick Rogers. Authorities are still searching for the other three suspects.

Evergreen Police say one of those suspects, Martin Jackson, may be on the run. If you can help find him, call Evergreen Police.

The victim, who was not identified, was flown to a hospital in Pensacola, Florida where he underwent surgery.
