BRANTFORD — One man is dead after police say he was shot late Friday night.

On April 5, 2019 at approximately 11:30pm the Brantford Police say they were called to a William Street address with reports of a male that had been assaulted, and a possible shooting.

Police say the victim was found at a home on William street suffering from a gunshot wound and without vital signs. He was taken to hospital and pronounced dead.

The victim was identified as Gerald Robert Male, 37, of Brantford.

Police say another male was located at the Williams Street residence and has not been identified as a suspect in the investigation.

This is the fifth shooting in Brantford in 2019. In January one man was sent to hospital after a shooting on Woodlawn Avenue. Police said the victim and two suspects knew each other.

In February two separate shooting incidents occurred a week apart. Another person was shot in March involving two suspects.

The current investigation on William Street is now an open homicide investigation. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Brantford Police.
