Despite the efforts of police and paramedics, police say the man did not survive the altercation.

Police also say people involved in the altercation had gone to hide in a nearby home, so officers brought in a negotiator to make contact with the suspects, who surrendered themselves after a short period of time.

Brockville police would not say how many suspects were involved in the alleged murder, nor would they divulge what kind of injuries the deceased sustained.
