A fight in the downtown core that resulted in police locating an unconscious male is currently being investigated by Kingston Police.

Police were initially dispatched to a fight in progress at 2:43 a.m. on Tuesday, Jul. 2, 2019 . While the original call stated the fight was taking place at The Spot Night Club, police were informed that the incident was actually in the area of Division and Brock Streets, just south of The Spot.

“Upon arrival they were directed to Brock Street where a male was located unconscious,” said Const. Ashley Gutheinz, media relations officer for Kingston Police. “Frontenac Paramedics and Kingston Fire and Rescue also attended, and the male was transported to KGH.”
