Police are hunting two males this morning after witnesses say an up-and-coming MMA fighter was killed trying to stop gunmen in a botched robbery attempt in Brampton.
Police were called to the Rozz Restaurant and Entertainment Complex on Saturday afternoon, where they found a Brampton man suffering from life threatening injuries.
Kearn Nedd, 28, was taken to hospital but later succumbed to his injuries.
A witness said there were 150 people at the hall for a charity poker game. The facility is located near the intersection of Highway 407 and Dixie Road.
Witnesses say two men burst into the banquet hall and fired several shots in a botched robbery attempt.
The victim was reportedly shot after a scuffle with one of the gunmen. Three bullet holes could be seen on the banquet hall's doors.
