Man shot dead in Stoney Creek neighbourhood: Hamilton police

A man is dead after a shooting in the city’s east end on Monday night, according to Hamilton police.

Investigators say officers responded to call of shots fired at around 10:45 p.m. in the area of Portofino Place in Stoney Creek, not far from Winona Road and the North Service Road.

Upon arrival, a 42-year-old man was found in a driveway with what appeared to be gunshot wounds, succumbing to his injuries on scene, say police.

Det. Sgt. Jim Callender says the investigation is in the infancy stages and that witnesses have been “very cooperative.”

“Right now, we’re not disclosing the name of the victim,” said Callender. “We’re still working towards notification of next of kin.”

He went on to say that the victim, a family man with children, was shot right out front of his own home.

“That was his address. He is a family man. And unfortunately, that’s another one of these cases where there’s collateral damage to these investigations.”
