Three youths arrested in connection to a 17 year old's death in Dundas

Three youths have been arrested in connection to the death of a 17 year old in Hamilton.

Police were called to a single vehicle collision in the Patterson Road and Wesley Road area of Dundas last night at 7:35 p.m.

Investigators discovered a deceased 17 year old victim on scene, but the injuries were inconsistent with a crash.

Police were then able to track down three young men described by witnesses as fleeing the area before officers arrived.

The trio has been arrested and will be charged with first degree murder later today. Investigators believe this was a targeted incident.

An autopsy will be completed by the coroner later this morning.
