KAMLOOPS - Police in Kamloops are releasing little information about a homicide investigation that began last week after a man was found dead on the North Shore.

The 42-year-old was found unconscious after getting into a fight with another man at a local pub in the early morning hours of Dec. 30, police said. The fight spilled out onto Wood Street between Tranquille Road and Cherry Avenue. 

Paramedics arrived around 2:49 a.m. but failed to revive the victim. Cpl. Jody Neuls told reporters last week the men were recently acquainted but was unsure how long they had known each other.

Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says the investigation is very active with members working on it daily, but no arrests have been made.

"We do not feel it was a random attack as it appears both parties involved knew each other," she said.

When asked whether any witnesses had come forward or anyone had given police surveillance or cell phone video, Shelkie said those details won't be released to the public until charges are laid by Crown counsel.

If you have any information about the altercation, you're asked to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
