Witnesses reported occupants of at least two cars opened fire on each other at 8:30 p.m. near the corner of Cremazie Boulevard E. and Iberville Street in the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough.

When police arrived, they found several gun shells on the ground on Iberville Street, but the suspects were no longer on the scene, says Montreal police Const. Andrée-Anne Picard.

A short while later, paramedics called 911 to report they were with a 25-year-old man who was shot in the upper body.

He had flagged down the ambulance and asked paramedics for help at the intersection of Jean-Talon Boulevard and Chabot Street.

The victim, who is known to police, was transported to hospital, but police do not fear for his life, Picard said. His vehicle was found nearby with what appears to be bullet damage.
