Tracy Philpott Jr. has died after two brothers ran him over with two separate cars.  The brothers chased him down after Philpott stole their 2007 Honda dirt bike.

According to police, Philpott took a 2007 Honda dirt bike from Garden Boulevard in Cleveland last Thursday. After being robbed, 28-year-old Alfonso Trail, III and his brother, 24-year-old Aaron J. Trail got into their respective vehicles and began looking for Philpott.

The Trails found him walking on E. 189 with the stolen dirt bike. While driving a 2003 Chevy Malibu, Alfonso Trail struck Philpott and the bike with his car.

Aaron Trail also struck the robbery suspect with his 2013 Kia.  

Philpott was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center. He died on July 26, two days after the incident.

A loaded handgun was recovered on scene by police. Police are trying to find out who possessed the handgun. 

The Trail brothers were originally charged with felonious assault. New charges are expected to be filed.
