A man remains in critical condition on life support after a group of kids beat him with bats, boards and shovels.

Milwaukee police say a mob of about 20 kids beat the man brain dead after he punched one of them in the mouth for throwing an egg at him.

A Milwaukee newstation reported that Milwaukee police now have eight suspects in custody, at least one as young as 10-years-old. The children have reportedly confessed to the crime.

The victim, 36-year-old Charlie Young Junior of Milwaukee, remains on life support.

Police say the gang chased Young onto the porch of a house on the city's north side and pummeled him, leaving blood splattered from floor to ceiling.

Authorities are still looking for more juveniles involved in the assault.
