17-year-old Jonathan Lewis of Las Vegas died Nov. 7 after 15 bullies allegedly beat him while he defended a “small boy,” according to 8 News Now.

Authorities found Lewis severely beaten near his Las Vegas high school, according to 8 News Now.

“One of his smaller friends had something stolen by this group of 15 and they threw the small boy in the trash can and our son confronted them and he was attacked by them,” a GoFundMe page set up by Lewis’ family read. “He’s a courageous young man.” (RELATED: 3 Ohio Men Allegedly Beat Teenager To Death, Steal His Car Outside Of High School Founded By LeBron James)

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s homicide unit has been investigating the situation, but no arrests have been made. Investigators told Lewis’ family they plan to charge multiple students involved in the alleged fight with murder, Lewis’ father claimed, per 8 News Now.

Lewis’ father reportedly expressed “disgust and disappointment” at the alleged fight that allegedly killed his son, saying “violence just begets more violence,” 8 News Now noted.

Lewis would like his son’s organs donated to save others, according to 8 News Now.
