On Sunday afternoon, police officers combed a stretch of 34 Street for evidence after a man was shot in the leg while inside his vehicle.

Staff Sgt. Tom Paton said a male sustained non-life threatening injuries after being shot once in southeast Edmonton.

He was treated at the Grey Nuns hospital just after 3 p.m.

Police closed the street from about 76 Avenue to 68 Avenue. Four officers walked in a row down the street searching for evidence.

Police were still trying to identify a suspect, as well as the location of the exact crime scene.
