Police say two men allegedly wearing dark clothing and masks shot and abducted a 42-year-old man.

Halifax Regional Police say the victim was located by police a short distance away from the scene where he was transported to hospital with unspecified but non-life-threatening injuries.

The van is said to have white window tinting covering the rear of the vehicle while the driver’s side window has a no-smoking decal on it.
