A man was shot and wounded early Sunday morning in Montreal's Rivière-des-Prairies borough.

Police (SPVM) were called to the scene on 1st Street, near 24th Avenue, around 1:30 a.m., where they discovered the bloodied victim, age 24.

He was rushed to hospital with "serious upper body injuries," according to SPVM spokesperson Jeanne Drouin, but his life is now considered out of danger.

No arrests have been made. A perimeter was set up where the man was found, and police are also investigating two other scenes linked to the shooting.

A suspect vehicle was discovered one intersection away on Gouin Boulevard. The wrecked vehicle had been abandoned there.

The actual shots were heard further east, at the intersection of Maurice-Duplessis Boulevard and J.J-Joubert Avenue. Shell casings were discovered on site, according to Drouin.

The SPVM brought in forensic technicians and the canine unit to aid in their investigation, which is ongoing.
