Police identify man killed in double shooting in Hamilton


The investigation into a fatal Friday night shooting in Hamilton is ongoing.

Around 9:25 p.m. on July 10, police say a dark coloured SUV and a blue BMW sedan were travelling southbound on the Red Hill Valley Parkway (RHVP).

While still moving, multiple shots were fired from the SUV into the sedan, striking the sedan’s driver and an occupant.

The driver, 27 year old Matar Abouchere, was pronounced dead.

“Matar was driving the vehicle at the time of the shooting and was able to bring the vehicle to a stop on the shoulder of the roadway,” police said.

The suspect vehicle fled the scene, exiting the RHVP at Greenhill Avenue.
