A Hamilton man has been kidnapped, police say, while one of his sons was shot and another son was killed after a violent home invasion.

Officers are looking for 63-year-old Faqir Ali, who they say was taken from a home in a dark SUV Thursday morning near Glancaster Road and Dickenson Road in Mount Hope. Both the sons are in their mid-20s, Hamilton police say.

“We do believe that his life is in danger,” said media relations officer Const. Indy Bharaj. “The main focus of this investigation, at this time, is bringing Faqir home safely.” 

Ali is described as five feet seven inches tall and 180 pounds. He has a medium complexion and thinning black hair.

He was wearing black and white plaid pyjamas bottoms and no shirt when he was taken from his home.

Police were called to the residence at 2:55 a.m. ET after reports of a shooting.

Officers say they found the men in their 20s suffering from gunshot wounds with life-threatening injuries. They were taken to hospital.

Police are asking the public to stay away from the area and say the major crimes unit is investigating. Investigators believe this was a targeted incident.

Hamilton police spokesperson Jackie Penman said “If you see Mr. Ali, call 911 immediately.”
