Hamilton police are continuing to investigate the incident and are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects opened fire at a vehicle in the area of Wilson Street and Birch Avenue North and Cannon Street East.

The two men, who police say appear to be friends and acquaintances, were engaged in a gunfight with the driver of a Nissan vehicle.

Both male shooters firing at the vehicle have been identified as suspect one and two.

Investigators will be in the neighbourhood on Tuesday canvassing for further video.
