A 17-year-old male was found apparently beaten to death Thursday night near the basketball courts of the I Promise School on West Market Street in Akron.

The teen was identified as Ethan Liming by the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office.

Liming was found at about 10:45 p.m. in a parking lot near the basketball court at the school at 400 W. Market St., the Summit County Medical Examiner's Office said Friday morning.

Akron police said Liming was with friends who pulled into the school parking lot. The group then got into a fight with at least three other males who were on the property playing basketball, police said.

Liming was knocked unconscious and "brutally assaulted," police said. The people who had been with the teen rushed home and called 911, police said. Police and medics who arrived found Liming unresponsive with what was described as severe injuries.

911 caller says 'our friend just got knocked out'
Akron police released a recording of a 911 call in which a young male initially gives the wrong name for the location of the incident, then quickly corrects himself.

"We're at the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio," he said. "Our friend just got knocked out. We don't know what to do."

There are other voices in the background as the dispatcher talks with the caller. She asks if there is a fight going on.

"There was," the caller said. "It's OK now. It's cool now."

The dispatcher asks if the caller's friend is unconscious and breathing.

The caller asks someone, "Is he breathing?" and then tells the dispatcher that his friend is breathing. She asks him how old his friend is and is told 17. The call then disconnects; the dispatcher calls back but the call goes into voicemail.

The teen was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:05 p.m. An autopsy will be done.

A friend of Liming's posted on Facebook that a peaceful candlelight vigil is planned from 8 to 9:30 p.m. Friday at Firestone's baseball field. She asks that people bring yellow and green balloons, candles and teddy bears.

Liming is the 16th homicide in Akron in 2022 and the fourth student in the Akron Public Schools district to die since May 23. Two siblings, ages 10 and 8, died in an Akron house fire May 23. A 15-year-old APS student was shot and killed in an altercation May 24.


The I Promise school is closed for the summer with the last day of class on May 25. The I Promise School is an elementary school that is a collaboration between the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools.

Akron Public Schools remembers teen as student leader
Akron Public Schools said Liming was a "rising senior" and student leader at Firestone Community Learning Center. He was in the school's Academy of Design.

"Our Akron Public Schools family expresses its deepest condolences and offers its prayers to the family and friends of a student who lost his life last night," Superintendent Christine Fowler Mack said in a letter to faculty and staff. She said "we mourn as one for Ethan Liming."

"The death of a student affects all of Akron Public Schools. Ethan’s passing is, sadly, one of many we have experienced during this school year," the superintendent said. "May we all pause a moment from our daily pressures to give thanks for the lives of these children. May we forever find ways to keep our memories of them alive. Each of these losses reminds us about how precious, and sometimes fleeting, life can be."

The district's crisis team is assisting staff at Firestone CLC and will make themselves available to students, she said.

LeBron, foundation mourn teen's death
The LeBron James Family Foundation said Friday morning that it was "devastated" by the news of the teen's death.

“Our community is everything to us," the foundation said in a statement. "We were devastated to learn of the overnight incident that saw a life lost near our school. We are grieving with our community over another senseless act of violence.

"Our campus is safe and secure as we continue to do everything we can to support our students, families, and the entire Akron community.”

How did that story get past the media?

@TexChik shows you how tilted the media is any more. They don’t want a negative story to off-set their touchy-feely stories they are putting in the news every day now

@cherokeepatti They have been completely corrupt since Clinton

@TexChik yeah but they take all these cute little stories now and show them on the news…then something important like this doesn’t get a mention.

@RogueLoner your comment ‘LeBron James involved’ is misleading in that it makes people think he was involved and took part in the beating death. It would have been better for you state he commented on it

@Jenny1234 You don't say! 🤭 If the media can use words to "make people think" things on other stories , so can I. 😊

The main stream media does this BS all the time. 😉
