News source from CTV News

HAMILTON – Community members will gather at Hamilton City Hall tonight to grieve the death of Yosif Al-Hasnawi, a 19-year-old Good Samaritan who police say was killed after trying to intervene in an altercation.

The memorial is being held by the Al-Mostafa Islamic Centre and will take place in the city hall’s council chambers.

Hamilton police have said Al-Hasnawi tried to intervene when he saw two men accosting an older man last Saturday.

They say the men then allegedly turned their attention to Al-Hasnawi and one shot him.

He was pronounced dead in hospital about an hour later.

Three people have since been charged in relation to the death of the first-year medical science student — one faces a second-degree murder charge and two others were charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
