Social evening turns deadly in Fort Rouge

  • Print

A 39-year-old man is dead and a 25-year-old is in custody after an incident in the 100 block of Mayfair Avenue last week.

The victim, identified as Stacy Ralph Barkman, was rushed to hospital on Thursday, Nov. 21 after police responded to a report of an assault.

An investigation by the West District station crime unit revealed that a social event had been taking place in a suite when an altercation allegedly erupted between the victim and a suspect, who were not known to each other.

Barkman suffered serious injuries to his upper body. Responding emergency personnel transported Barkman to hospital in critical condition, where he later succumbed to his injuries. Barkman is the city’s 24th homicide victim this year.

The suspect, who allegedly fled the scene before police arrived, was later located and arrested.
Patrick Jeremy Hill, of God’s Lake  First Nation, was charged by police with aggravated assault and then, upon Barkman’s death, second degree murder for his alleged involvement.

Hill is currently being held at the Provincial Remand Centre.
