A man found unconscious in Ottawa's west end 11 days ago has died, prompting the police major crime section to take over the investigation of the incident.
Michael Aitkenhead, 22, of Ottawa was found lying unconscious on the ground around 2:25 a.m. on Nov. 1 by police responding to 911 calls about a disturbance on Westmount Avenue, just north of the Queensway near Parkdale Avenue.
He was taken to hospital, where he regained consciousness. However, he fell unconscious again this past Monday.
He was taken off life support and pronounced dead on Wednesday morning.
An autopsy has been ordered.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
