A violent night in downtown Hamilton has police investigating a pair of shootings just a kilometre apart from each other.

Police say gunshots rang out in an apparent drive-by shooting on Sherman Avenue North near Cannon Street just before 2 a.m. on Friday.

A man was rushed to hospital in stable condition with a gunshot wound.

Not much further away, a second shooting resulted in a man walking himself into hospital.

Police say the incident occurred on Avondale Street near Barton Street East and Gage Avenue North.

Police have yet to release any suspect information in either shooting.
