CHICAGO — Surveillance video shows more than a dozen people doing nothing to help a Chicago bartender as he is attacked, left unconscious on the street and accidentally run over by a taxi.

Marques Gaines later died at a hospital.

The video his family released Wednesday shows a man outside a convenience store punching Gaines, who falls to the ground. The video shows people ignoring Gaines and walking by, then a taxi runs over his body.

CBS Chicago reports that at least one person seen on the video appears to steal his wallet before walking away.

The family of 32-year-old Gaines has filed a wrongful death and negligence lawsuit against several businesses and taxi companies in his Feb. 7 death.

Chicago police say detectives are investigating and that the cab driver was not cited at the scene.
