Mobile police expect to make arrests in the Matthew Owens beating case today.
Owens is in critical condition at USA Medical Center, three days after police say he was beaten by “multiple people” armed with chairs, pipes and paint cans Saturday night in front of his house on Delmar Drive.
Police are downplaying the Trayvon Martin comment, but the family insists one of the attackers said “Now thats justice for Trayvon” after the attack. Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Samford, Florida.
