Case of 26-year old Kyle Syrenne is now considered closed.
Those responsible for the death of Kyle Syrenne will not be charged.
The crown has opted not to proceed with charges in the death of Kyle Syrenne, saying in a statement released today, that there was little chance of conviction.
The incident happened in the early morning hours of Saturday, February 21 on the Songhees First Nation in Esquimalt.
Witnesses say the 26 year old Syrenne was swarmed and attacked on Ned Williams Road.
Four people had stepped out of a Bluebird Taxi, that had been hailed outside the Esquimalt Tim Horton’s.
The driver was asked to return in 10 minutes.
Once he left, 2 men and 2 women reportedly approached Syrenne in the street and assaulted him.
He suffered a head injury and died later in hospital.
Those involved in the incident were identified and charges were put forward last month.
Criminal Justice Branch spokesperson, Dan McLaughlin says the case was complicated by conflicting descriptions of what happened.
The case is now considered closed unless new evidence is submitted.
