Teen fatally beaten at party buried

A portrait of Bobby Tillman, the 18-year-old who was stomped to death in a random act of violence over the weekend, is surrounded by classmates and friends during a vigil Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2010, in Douglasville, Ga.

COLLEGE PARK, Ga.  - An 18-year-old who was beaten to death while dozens of people watched during a random attack at a house party is being laid to rest.

Bobby Tillman's funeral is set for this morning at Siloam Church International in College Park, south of Atlanta.

Tillman was killed last Sunday in Douglasville, a working-class suburb of Atlanta. Police say Tillman, who did not know his attackers, became a target after a fight broke out among partygoers. Investigators say the fight started when a woman hit a man. The man said he would not hit the woman back but vowed to hit the next man who walked by.

Four men have been charged with murder in Tillman's death, and authorities say they are looking for other suspects. Three of the men have said they are innocent.
