Montreal police are investigating after the driver of a delivery van was shot Monday afternoon in Saint-Leonard.
Police received a 911 call at 1:40 p.m. reporting a conflict between two motorists on the service road of Highway 40, just before the Langelier exit in the eastbound direction.
Montreal police spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils said a vehicle pulled up alongside a delivery van and shot the driver.
The driver was rushed to hospital to be treated for upper body injuries.
“We do not fear for his life,” Chèvrefils said, adding the victim was conscious during transport to hospital.
The other motorist fled the scene.
Police are describing the shooting as an incidence of road rage.
The eastbound Highway 40 service road is closed staring at Larcodaire, and the Langelier exit is also closed, to allow for the investigation.
