Uh, never mind

Apparently early reports of the mob beating of a man in east Austin were not entirely accurate.
At a news conference this afternoon, City Manager Toby Futrell said that she had heard media reports all day today that were inaccurate, including some that said hundreds of people did nothing to assist in the attack, and that it was carried out by as many as 20 people.

Police believe about three to four men may have participated in the beating.

She blamed the city for releasing information Wednesday morning that she said fueled belief that the beating was tied to the Juneteenth celebration.

Mayor Will Wynn said he's heard from people all over the world "about something that did not occur Tuesday night."
