A man was shot after what police believe to be a bar fight on the morning of January 29, leaving the victim with non-critical injuries.

The SPVM received reports of gunshots around 6:15 a.m. that morning, as well as a 911 call for a man who had been shot on boulevard de l'Acadie near rue Mazurette in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, according to SPVM media spokesperson Véronique Dubuc.

Once the police arrived on the scene, paramedics were already providing care to the victim, who had injuries to his upper body. Medical authorities "do not fear for his life," according to the SPVM.

A conflict seemed to have begun in a bar, followed by gunshots taking place outside the establishment. Several people have been detained, and the investigation is ongoing.
