The eyewitness says all were African Americans. The young lady was described as about 19-years-old, with short hair. She was said to be wearing blue jeans and a hoodie-type jacket. The witness describes one of the men as about six feet tall, with dreadlocks and dark skin complexion.

Eddie Franklin was taken to a local hospital and has been released.

Sources tell Action News Eddie Franklin’s girlfriend made a police report. She told police the beating took place while she was inside the gas station. She says she did not witness the beating or know it was going to happen. When she came outside, she says a stranger pointed to Eddie who was walking away injured and bloody.
