Hamilton police are still trying to track down a man who may have witnessed a homicide in the city more than seven months ago.

Nineteen-year-old Ali Mohummad was stabbed to death on July 29, 2020 after police say he and his friends were swarmed and ambushed by a mob in a plaza parking lot at Limeridge Road West and Kendale Court.

Investigators with the Major Crime Unit have obtained hundreds of hours of surveillance footage from various vantage points in the area and have used it to identify others who were present during the incident.
