Investigators have released surveillance images of a “vehicle of interest” as they try to identify who was behind a drive-by shooting on the Hamilton mountain over the weekend.

Shortly after 6 p.m. on Sunday, police say a “dark-coloured” Audi sedan was seen driving past a home on Elgar Avenue, in the area of Garth Street and Mohawk Road.

Someone inside the vehicle fired “multiple shots” at a group of people gathered outside the residence before fleeing the scene, according to police.

No one was injured.
