A 28-year-old man on a motorcycle was shot in the Beauport district of Quebec City overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday.
The police were called shortly after 11:30 p.m. for a man with upper body injuries near Francheville Street and Sainte-Anne Boulevard.
The victim was transported to a hospital, but there is no fear for his life, said Sandra Dion of the Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ).
The scene was protected by a large security perimeter for investigators who will try to determine the exact circumstances surrounding this event.
A dog handler and the forensic identification unit were also called to the scene, added the SPVQ, which reports no suspect arrests in the file.
