Shots fired into parked vehicle in Hamilton
The day before a fatal shooting in Hamilton left one man dead, there was another shooting in the city, involving a parked car.
Police say around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 7, a resident of Elgar Avenue, reported hearing a series of loud bangs and later awoke to find their vehicle riddled with bullet holes.
