Hamilton Police have reported that a man in his forties was shot to death outside a barbershop on Upper Wellington between Queensdale and Brucedale yesterday afternoon. No name has been released yet. Police report four black males were seen running from the scene, but there have been no arrests.
That's the fourth homicide of 2016 in the city and the first in the three Mountain wards. Hamilton had only six homicides in all of last year. Tomorrow I'll make a post breaking down the four murders so far.
