Police in Hamilton have made an arrest in connection with the death of a 19-year-old Good Samaritan over the weekend.

Yosif Al-Hasnawi was shot and killed when he tried to intervene as two men were accosting an older man in the Main Street and Wentworth Street area.

Dale Burningsky King, 19, was arrested late Thursday afternoon at a home in Hagersville. He has been charged with second degree murder.

Police say a female was also arrested at the time. They say she is related to King and charges are pending against her.

On Monday, police previously arrested James Anthony Robert Matheson and charged the 20-year-old with accessory after the fact to murder.

A vigil is scheduled to be held in honour of Al-Hasnawi on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. at Brock University, where the teen was in his first year of medical sciences studies.
