A 49-year-old nightclub security man from Hamilton is among five people killed in a shooting at a music festival in Mexico.

Longtime friend Neil Forester says Kirk Wilson was working security at the annual B-P-M Festival and was one of several people from the Toronto area lending a hand to the festival’s Canadian organizers.

Forester described Wilson — a married father of two — as a fixture on the Toronto club scene who freelanced in security and running the front door of various Toronto clubs.

Two other Canadians were hurt in the attack, but their identities have not been released.

Tennis Canada says Wilson was part of the security team for the Rogers Cup in Toronto for almost two decades.
