A MAN died following a fight inside the Kingston Hotel last night (July 5).
ACT police’s detective acting superintendent Matt Reynolds says police were called to the hotel at about 9.15pm to find ACT paramedics working on the 44-year-old. About 20 to 30 people were there at the time of his death.
“Unfortunately this man has died at the scene and we have commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death,” he says.
“There was an altercation between the deceased and another male and we are actively seeking any information from witnesses and anyone who may have information in relation to that altercation.”
There were no weapons involved in the fight and there is no one in custody at this stage, police report.
“At this time we are still seeking to contact the family of the male [and] we’re not sure if the deceased was living in the ACT or if he was living interstate,” detective Reynolds says.
