A resident of Capitol Hill succumbed to injuries sustained during an attack last night on Jeremie Street, becoming the first victim of a homicide for this year.
The deceased has been identified as Joseph Herman.
According to information obtained by the Times, he was attacked by two men and sustained multiple stab wounds.
Herman was taken to Victoria Hospital and died some time this morning, it is reported.
Apparently the attack on him came as part of a long running dispute.
It is suspected that a female may have been involved in the stabbing incident.
