Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY RYAN SMITH

THE fa­ther of a North­ern Ir­ish man shot dead in Canada has paid trib­ute to his son.

Tyler Mclean, 25, died along­side pal Amir Ja­mal af­ter an al­ter­ca­tion out­side a Toronto night­club on Oc­to­ber 1.

Mr Mclean’s dad Hugh, who runs Ever­safe Tech­nolo­gies in Newry, Co Down, said: “He was a won­der­ful fella. So kind and car­ing.

“We are dev­as­tated. We went to Toronto and we had a memo­rial ser­vice for Tyler on Satur­day and over 400 friends of his and rel­a­tives came and it was a great ser­vice.” Speak­ing to the Ir­ish News, Mr Mclean added: “He was a great son and a great brother.

“We are shocked and just dis­traught. We thought Toronto was a safe city.”

The vic­tim, who worked as a night­club pro­moter, had been due to travel to North­ern Ire­land to start a new job in his fa­ther’s busi­ness the day af­ter his killing. Two men have re­port­edly been charged with sec­ond­de­gree mur­der.
