Man shot multiple times in Middletown

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

A 21-year-old man was in hospital with multiple gunshot wounds last night after a lone motorcycle rider opened fire on a North Hamilton street.

Police said the gunman descended from Curving Avenue onto Middletown Drive shortly before 3.30pm.

Authorities swiftly cordoned off the road, with schoolchildren returning home among onlookers outside residences.

Police spokesman Dwayne Caines said officers were particularly keen to speak with anyone who saw a man riding a white bike, likely to be a Sym model, that may have had a red insignia on the muffler.

The rider wore a black and white helmet, blue trousers and a dark blue or black jacket.

The shooting on the outskirts of Hamilton follows an incident of shots fired near midnight on Friday in Southampton. A shooting on May 21 claimed the life of Patrick Dill.

Anyone with information about yesterday's attack is asked to call Acting Inspector Dean Martin on 295-0011. Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers on 800-8477.
