Funeral service for slain Brock University student, Yousif Al-Hasnawi

As the search continues for a suspect in the shooting of a 19 year old  Brock University student from Hamilton, friends and family gathered yesterday to bid him farewell calling him a hero to us all.

A funeral for Yousif Al-Hasnawi was held last night, after he was shot and killed Saturday night  in downtown Hamilton, while attempting to help a senior being accosted by two men.

Police, meantime, have issued an arrest warrant for 19 year old Dale Burningsky King.

A second suspect was arrested yesterday, 20 year old James Matheson is charged with being an accessory after the fact to murder.

Both the Hamilton Parademic Services and the Ontario Ministry of Health are also investigating after witnesses critized the paramedics' response, saying first responders  told the teen  he was acting  and tried to make him stand after he was shot.
