An Ohio teenager was beaten to death over an incident involving a water gel gun, according to police. Three men were arrested in connection with the deadly beating at a school that was founded by NBA star LeBron James.

Ethan Liming, 17, was found beaten to death on June 2 in the parking lot of I Promise School in Akron which was established by James, according to Akron Police Department Chief Stephen Mylett.

“Shortly after their arrival, they got out of their vehicle, and at least two members of occupants of the vehicle started discharging a, what we know now to be a SPLATRBALL Water Bead Blaster,” Mylett said. “They started discharging it at the direction of four individuals who were playing basketball on the basketball court.”

The people playing basketball initially ran away from the juveniles with the water guns. However, the individuals then allegedly followed the juveniles back to their car in the parking lot.
