Montreal police are searching for a man after a shooting Monday at a luxury clothing store in downtown Montreal.

The suspect entered the Giorgio Gruppo Roma clothing store on Peel Street and shot a store worker.

According to Caroline Chèvrefils, a spokesperson with the Montreal police, the assailant left the weapon at the scene and escaped through one of the nearby stores.

Sources tell Global News that the weapon used in the shooting was a long gun.

Chèvrefils said the alleged shooter was wearing a fluorescent work vest and a mask.

The victim, a man in his sixties, was shot in the lower body and is in stable condition in hospital.

Investigators are currently on the scene.

The Peel store was the target of a firebombing in March 2017.
