UPDATE: Active police investigation near Hamilton’s Cathedral High School now clear


Published January 4, 2024 at 9:18 am

An active investigation near Acorn Street and Sanford Avenue North, just east of downtown Hamilton, has now been cleared by police.

Hamilton Police were urging residents in the area to remain in their homes earlier today, though no specific reason was provided.

The location is near Cathedral High School, but no school lockdowns have been publicized and no other details have been released by police.

Police have now declared there is “no concern for public safety.”

In an unrelated incident, a 21-year-old man was arrested following a shooting in the same area last May. Two people were injured in that shooting.
