KAMLOOPS — Kamloops RCMP Serious Crime investigators are looking into the city's fourth homicide of 2016.
Cpl. Jody Neuls says it happened after a fight on the North Shore in the wee hours of this morning.
"On December 30, 2016, at ten-to-three in the morning, Kamloops RCMP were called to a fight that was in progress around the 400-block of Tranquille Road. Police arrived to find an unconscious man and first aid was administered by BC Ambulance. Tragically, the 42 year old man succumbed to his injuries and died at the scene."
Police are searching for a suspect.
But Neuls says there were no weapons involved in the altercation, and it doesn't appear there is any danger to the general public.
"Information that has been gathered to date indicates that this event stemmed from an argument between two men who were recently acquainted at a local licensed facility. As such, RCMP investigators do not believe there is an outstanding safety concern for the public."
Neuls says investigators are looking for witnesses.
"Police are in the process of identifying all of the people who were involved, all of the people who were present at that time. We're asking that they come forward, identify yourselves and please provide the information to police so we can make a determination of exactly what happened last night and determine the series of events."
