Despite life-saving efforts, the man died of his injuries.
“While this is believed to be an isolated incident, it is very concerning for our community.” Const. Nicole Braithwaite said in a news release. “Anyone who may have been in the area leading up to the event and may have witnessed this is asked to please call the IHIT info line.”
There’s no word yet on how exactly the man was killed, or where the altercation happened. No suspects have been arrested, and police haven’t said anything about potential motives.
