A 24-year-old man was hospitalized with gunshot wounds last night in connection, Montreal police believe, with a shooting incident in the Montreal-Nord borough.

Police received several calls just after 10:30 p.m. last night concerning multiple gunshots heard near the intersection of rues Lapierre and Pascal.

When police arrived at the site, they did not find a victim nor did they spot a suspect in the area, SPVM spokesperson Mariane Allaire Morin told MTL Blog.

Shells were found on the ground, so a crime scene was established and a canine unit was brought in to search for evidence. Forensic experts then arrived alongside investigators.

Several hours later, a man suffering from a gunshot wound to their lower body was admitted into a nearby hospital. The police believe this person to be the victim of the attack.

The injury is reportedly not life-threatening and no suspect has been apprehended at this time.
