Officers arrived to find a 31-year-old man with a gunshot wound, police said.

“The information we have right now is that the actual person that called this file in was not the victim, it was called in by a neighbour that heard a commotion,” said Cpl. Mike Kalanj.

Investigators say the incident appears targeted, and believe it is unrelated to other violent incidents in the city this month.

No suspect has been identified, and police say the victim is known to them.

“At this point in time we don’t even have a description of the suspect, so I can’t even tell you if they know each other.”

Police are appealing for witnesses to come forward, and are asking anyone with dashcam video shot in the area between 4:45 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. to submit it to police.
