The Vancouver Police are making an appeal to the public after a shooting that injured a 45-year-old man on Saturday evening.

The VPD received a report of shots fired at around 5 pm in the area of East 53rd Avenue and Prince Edward Street, and officers arrived to find a man suffering from gunshot wounds.

He was rushed to hospital and sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Now, detectives from the Major Crimes Section are looking for drivers who may have dashcam footage and were in the area between 4:30 and 5:30 pm Saturday.

Specifically, police are looking for anyone who was driving on East 49th Avenue along the north, East 57th Avenue at the south, Fraser Street to the east, and Main Street at the west.
