A memorial service will be held today for Christopher Skinner, the 28-year-old who was brutally murdered early Sunday morning.

Detectives continue to review security footage taken from the Entertainment District and the Adelaide Street East area to find descriptions of the suspects and the vehicle they were driving.

According to police, Skinner was confronted by at least two men in a black SUV near the intersection of Adelaide and Victoria streets around 3 a.m.

The men assaulted Skinner, returned to their vehicle and drove over him before fleeing east on Adelaide. Skinner died in hospital.

Despite the eyewitness accounts, police have not been able to release any descriptions of the suspects or the make and model of their vehicle.

Skinner had spent the night celebrating his sister’s birthday at a bar and was walking home.

Skinner’s friends have suggested he was targeted because he was gay, but police say they have no indication the suspects were aware of his sexuality.
