Two men were in serious condition Tuesday morning after separate shooting incidents in Montreal the night before.

The first occurred at 9:15 p.m., when a 25-year-old man was struck at least once by a bullet fired at him as he stood at the corner of Chartier Ave. and Côte-de-Liesse Rd. in Dorval.

The man was conscious when taken to hospital and told police he has no idea why he was targeted. A crime scene unit was deployed at the site of the shooting and investigators intend to scan any surveillance recordings in the area in an effort to track down the suspects.

A car was seen leaving the area at the time of the shooting but it was unclear early Tuesday whether it was connected to the incident.

The second shooting occurred a little before midnight at the other end of Montreal Island, at the corner of Notre Dame St. near 4th Ave. in the Pointe-aux-Trembles district.

Officers arriving at the scene found an unconscious 24-year-old man who had been shot at least once. The suspect is believed to have fled the area on foot.

As of early Tuesday morning, no arrests had been made in either case.
