A Hamilton man is in hospital after being shot in the leg and lower back.
Police say the shooting happened just after 9 o’clock last night on King Street East and Gailmont Drive in the east end.
The 28 year old victim was reportedly shot with pellets, although police have not confirmed that.
He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries and is expected to recover.
Detectives say the victim was targeted and the shooting involved illegal drug trafficking.
Police say the suspect ran to a silver or light coloured car, believed to have two other people inside, and took off.
Officers are hoping to speak with anyone who may have surveillance video in the area.
