Calgary Police are looking for those involved in a shooting in the city's northeast that sent one man to hospital last week.

At around 9 p.m. on Aug. 19, police arrived to the 200 block of 11th Avenue N.E. for reports of gunshots.

A man was found at the scene and was suffering from a gunshot wound. Police say he was taken to hospital in non-life threatening condition.

It is not believed the victim and assailants knew each other, according to a police news release Thursday.

Two vehicles have been identified as being in the area during the shooting: a silver Nissan Versa and a turquoise Chevrolet Spark.

Police say the drivers of these vehicles may have information.

"Gun violence in Calgary's neighbourhoods is very concerning and we are working to understand what happened here and who may be involved," said Sgt. Keith Sylvester of the general investigative unit in the release.

Anyone with information about this incident or these vehicles is asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or submit a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
