Mohammed died early Friday at a hospital.
All five men were released after a court proceeding Saturday and were placed in a high-intensity supervision program, which includes electronic monitoring.
About 60 supporters of the men went to the hearing at D.C. Superior Court, cramming the courtroom and filling the hallway outside. Attorneys for two of the men said they were innocent and criticized D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier for calling the incident a "savage" case of "vigilante justice" Friday.

He became angry and threw at least one brick through the nightclub's front window, witnesses told investigators.Aggravated assault, after this guy threw bricks through the window of a crowded nightclub.
