Hamilton police continue search for gunman in fatal shooting

Hamilton police are still trying to determine the identity of a gunman who fatally shot one man and injured three others on Wednesday.

Flowers mark the spot where the shooting happened on East Ave. around 1:30 a.m. A group of roughly six people were standing on the sidewalk when someone began shooting at them.

A 34-year-old man was killed and three others were injured but are expected to be okay.

On Thursday, investigators said the injured victims were not completely cooperating with police.

Officers were canvassing the neighbourhood again on Thursday for video but tell CHCH there has been conflicting reports about who the shooter is.

What they do know is several shots were fired from a hand gun into a group of people. Michael Campbell of Brampton was killed, two men and a woman hurt. Police say it was a targeted shooting and there is no danger to public.
