Six Nations Police investigating 'targeted' shooting on Mohawk Road

Six Nations police are investigating a targeted shooting on Mohawk Road on Thursday afternoon.

ORNGE Air Ambulance confirmed one person was airlifted to a Hamilton hospital with injuries.

Six Nations police say Mohawk Road between Third Line Road and Fourth Line Road will be closed until the investigation is complete.

They say they are looking for a suspect, but the shoot appears to be targetted and there's no danger to the public.

Thursday evening, there was a heavy police presence in the area. Six Nations Police requested the assistance of the Ontario Provincial Police.

An OPP spokesperson said the Halidmand OPP and K-9 unit responded to a request for assistance from Six Nations police at 2:30 p.m., but were unable to provide further information, citing the ongoing investigation.

Residents who live nearby said police were on scene late Thursday night until Friday morning with officers appearing to be focused on an area with trailer homes.

"I've seen things happen but nothing like that anyway. I've known the situation going on over there and it's doesn't surprise me at all that this happened," said Shawn Martin, who has lived on Mohawk Road for nearly 60 years. "I hope everybody stays safe."

Anyone with information is asked to call police or Crime Stoppers.
