Something about this story does not add up. This Brock guy is arguing with his GF and the Johnson kid tries to leave the party, so Brock suddenly starts hitting him with a hammer? Also, from the stories on FB, There were 2 people involved in the beating. But no mention of the 2nd person in the news.

Channel 9 news this AM is telling a little different tale. Sounds more logical. Says Johnson was involved in arguement not Brock & girlfriend. Looks like someone might have been trying to conceal a little truth

No matter what happened no one deserves to be hit in the head over and over by a hammer. When someone does that they're meaning to kill. Since when did you all start believing all the media says? The chatsworth times article seems more up to par with the story. My prayers to the Hooper/Johnson family.

You can't believe anything the media says! They just want a good story and they don't care about truth.

First off "citizen" you should be ashamed. This is a 17 year old who will be possibly disabled for the rest of his life that you are downing. Keep on talking lies and the good lord will take care of you. Next he wasn't at a party. They were having dinner with friends. Why this Brock guy lost it no one knows but no matter this 17 year old didn't deserve being beat in the head by a hammer. That's attempted murder! According to Dana,the mother, on her facebook he is on a long road to recovery. Could be up to 2 years and right now the doctors are just focused on saving his eye. To the people praying for Colton thank you.

I do not know any parties involved. I do know that no human being deserves to be treated this way. I am praying for a full recovery for this boy and justice to be served.

First off it says party then says cookout. The media doesn't know. Fact is a kid was hit in the head by a adult with a hammer. What if it was your child or someone you loved that this happened to? How would you feel if you read rudeness like you're posting? Have you ever read that he without sin cast the first stone? Obviously not!

party-cookout= same thing, how ridiculous. btw 17 is not a child, he's an adult "man". my "child" was taught not to associate with the kind of person that did this to him. it's not rudeness, it's the truth, get a clue why don't you.

You are being ugly . Why do you want to hurt someone that is already hurting ? I am guessing you are a grown up .Its time for you to start acting like one . It should not mater to you or anyone else where this young man was when he was hit with a hammer,What should mater to you is the boys life .

I don't understand why people bicker back and forth when not a one of you know what happened that night. I have know Steven for several years now and I'm not taking his side. The truth of what happened will never be heard because the boy has relative in the " justice" system of Murray county. It's just like a previous comment said the media is full of crap they blow everything out of proportion. I say pray for both parties and the truth be found regardless of the outcome.

I hope your child turns out to be as perfect as you are. You are just assuming he was somewhere that he shouldn't of been which you're wrong on that assumption to. Also in a crime such as this the 17 year old is considered a juvenile. That's a fact BTW. Oh and here's another fact he is his parents child. I hope your child doesn't turn out anything like you. Bless its poor innocent heart. If it was older i'm sure it would be ashamed of you. Now citizen you go get a clue.

He was at a party. He had an altercations he got the bad end of a guy with more anger and lost. Feel bad cause he is blind but you'd think he'd learn from all the shit he has already been in.

I will not discuss or talk about that night due to the investigation. I was there and it is still a shock. My son is on a very long road to recovery and I appreciate all the prayers and support. To the few on here who want to put me or my son down and say untrue things. I pray you don't ever go through what my son,myself and my family have been through. Especially the pain my son has been going through. I ask that you please stop being mean or talking about something you know nothing about and be thankful this didn't happen to your loved one or child. I don't care if you don't like me or my son. Talk about me all you want but please leave my son alone. He doesn't deserve any of this. Thank you and thank you for your prayers....they're working.
