Ottawa police say they’re looking into a shooting that wounded two men in the Heron Gate area on Thursday night.
Officers said shots were fired at an occupied vehicle at 9:08 p.m. on Thursday in the area of Albion Road North and Heatherington Road.
The targeted car attempted to flee but collided with parked cars in the process, police said.
The driver of the car eventually noticed an ambulance crossing their path at the intersection of Alta Vista Drive and Bank Street and flagged paramedics down.
According to police, both occupants of the vehicle had been shot and were assessed by paramedics and taken to hospital. Their injuries were listed as serious but not life-threatening.
Albion Road North was closed between Kitchener Avenue and Walkley Road for several hours Thursday night while police investigated the scene but has since reopened.
