According to the arrest report, the man's mother called police shortly before 7:30 p.m. April 6 to report that her two sons were fighting and they had guns and bats.

When police arrived, they discovered Fredrick Gage inside a garage, covered in blood and bleeding from the head.

Frederick was transport to St. Rose Sienna Hospital where he received 8 stitches. He was then transported to Sunrise Trauma in critical condition with a skull fracture and possible brain bleed. After he arrived at Sunrise, 28 staples were put into his head.
