Hamilton police investigate shots fired over weekend

Hamilton police Sgt. Brian Robinson said the entire incident unfolded in front of George’s Appliances, 1025 Hanover St., shortly before 8 p.m.

Officers had received a call about an auto accident, but when they arrived in front of the store, the investigation escalated into finding out who had fired gunshots.

“On the way there officers also realized this was quite possibly related to a call of gunshots heard in that area at the same time. On arrival they found a vehicle had been involved in an accident,” Robinson said. “A couple bullet holes were observed in the vehicle, but the occupants were and continue to be uncooperative and only wanted to leave the scene.”

No one was injured or hit during the gunfire he added, but police are hoping that witnesses to the incident will come forward.

“Information received indicates the occupants of the vehicle argued with a subject around 11th and Hanover and that this is another incident that is not a random act, but related to nefarious relationships,” Robinson said.

Hamilton police have encouraged residents to “see something, say something” so they can make arrests in crimes.
