Three men were charged with first-degree murder Friday in one of a series of brutal beating deaths of homeless men. The five killings and several near-fatal beatings had sent a wave of fear through the downtown area's large homeless community. The Denver Rescue Mission was overwhelmed by homeless men seeking a safe place to sleep. The three defendants, one of whom is 16, are members of a clique police call "mall rats," who hang out around a small park in the busy 16th Street Pedestrian Mall.
