Police were called to the 2700 block of Fenton Road, off Albion Road South, just after 7 p.m. and found a man with multiple gunshot wounds, the OPS said in a press release Thursday.

Ambulance personnel transported the victim to a trauma center in serious condition. His injuries were life-threatening, police said.

The victim was in stable condition on Thursday, police said, but he did not cooperate with investigators and no description of the suspect was available.

Investigators suspect the suspect or suspects fled in a white Toyota car.

The OPS called witnesses and asked anyone with information if they were in the area at the time and may have a dashcam or security video to contact the OPS Guns and Gangs Unit at 613-236-1222, extension. 5050.

Wednesday’s shooting was the second consecutive shooting on the streets of Ottawa. Police say men in two different cars shot at each other on Tuesday in the 2000 block of Russell Road, but no suspected victims have been confirmed in the shooting.
