A 27-year-old man has died and another man is in hospital after a shooting in Hamilton Friday night.

Hamilton police were called to Southbound Red Hill Valley Parkway between King Street and Greenhill Avenue around 9:30 p.m.

Investigators say two vehicles were travelling southbound on the parkway when multiple shots were fired from one vehicle, a dark-coloured SUV into a second vehicle.

The two men in the second vehicle were struck by the gunshots.

Matar Abouchere, 27, was driving the vehicle when shots were fired and was able to bring the vehicle to the shoulder.

He later died of his injuries.

The suspects then fled the scene. Police are still investigating the incident and are working to determine the motive of the shooting.
