(June 21, 2007)--Austin police Thursday backed off their initial descriptions of a mob beating a man to death after a child was hurt by the victim's car.
Police now say they're looking for three or four suspects and that fewer than two-dozen rather than hundreds of people witnessed Tuesday's attack.
Austin officials also minimized the attack's connection to a city-sponsored Juneteenth festival that had just wrapped up a few blocks from the beating.
So far no arrests have been made in the killing of 40-year-old David Rivas Morales.
Morales was beaten to death after a car in which he was riding bumped a toddler.
The boy, whom police identified as two-year-old Michael Hosea Jr., wasn't seriously hurt.
