On Tuesday, April 9, 2019, shortly before 11:00 p.m., Hamilton Police responded to reports of a street disturbance in the area of Sherman Avenue north of Barton Street East. Prior to police arrival, people believed to be involved in the incident were observed fleeing through an alley, west of Sherman Avenue. Once on scene police became aware of a disturbance at a nearby residence on Barton Street. They attended the location and with the front door already open continued to hear screaming and disorder.
