Hamilton police have identified a 34-year-old Brampton man shot dead in the city early Wednesday morning.
Gunshots rang out in the area of East Avenue North and King Street East at around 1:30 a.m.
Hamilton police told CP24 that four people sustained gunshot wounds.
Det. Sgt. Dave Oleniuk identified the victim as Michael Campbell of Brampton.
The three other victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
No arrests have been made in the case but police say a suspect description will be forthcoming.
In a news release issued Wednesday, investigators said they do not believe the incident was a "random act."
Oleniuk says they have not developed a suspect description and no weapon has been recovered.
He said the group of victims may have been at a nearby bar earlier in the evening, but that the bar had been closed for at least a half an hour when shots rang out.
Police are asking any witnesses or people with video surveillance footage to come forward.
King Street remains closed between Emerald Street and East Avenue but police say they hope to have the area reopened shortly.
East Avenue between King Street and King William Street is expected to be closed for most of the day.
