TORONTO – A man who was kidnapped early Thursday morning has been found with life-threatening injuries following a shooting and home invasion that left one of his sons dead and another in critical condition, Hamilton police said.

Shortly before 3 a.m. on Thursday, police responded to reports of a shooting at a residence on Glancaster and Dickenson Roads in the Mount Hope neighborhood.

When officers arrived at the scene, they located two men with gunshot wounds.

Police said the men, who are brothers in their 20s, were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

A man later died of his injuries, police said.

His identity has not been disclosed.

Their father was “forcibly taken” from the residence in a dark SUV, police said.

He was identified by police as Faqir Ali, 63.

About six hours after the incident, at around 9 a.m., Ali was located after being dropped by a vehicle on Beach Boulevard near the lift bridge in Hamilton, police said.

Ali was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

The three victims lived at the residence, police said, and investigators believe the incident was targeted.

It is not known if there were other residents inside the house at the time of the home invasion.

“Our understanding is that there were multiple people involved. We don’t have descriptors at this time,” Const said. Indy Bharaj told reporters Thursday morning.

The Major Crimes Unit is investigating.

Bharaj said the incident follows a number of other recent shootings in the city.

“It’s disturbing, like it’s not something Hamilton should get used to. And this is, I think, the third shoot of the last week or days. It’s not something. that should become normal in Hamilton, and we want people to report any criminal activity in their area, ”he said.

There is a strong police presence in the area and the public is urged to stay away from the scene.

“We appeal to anyone else who may have heard, seen, had camera footage or surveillance in the area to come forward and help us,” Bharaj said.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Det. Lisa Chambers at 905-546-3863 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
