No one has been arrested in a downtown shooting that left a 30-year old man dead.
Police rushed to King Street West and Caroline Street at around 3:15 Saturday morning after a reported stabbing in a Tim Horton’s parking lot.
It turned out the victim, Tyler Johnson, had been shot during an altercation with two groups of men.
Paramedics tried to revive him, but Johnson was pronounced dead at Hamilton General Hospital.
It’s the city’s thirteen murder of 2013 and the third in that block this year.
The parking lot is the same place where 18-year old David Pereira was fatally stabbed early in the morning of September 15th.
In that incident, a 49-year old man was arrested at the scene and charged with first degree murder.
