OTTAWA -- Two men are in hospital and a stretch of Hunt Club Road is closed after a shooting Tuesday morning.

Police say two men in their 20s were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Those two men were in a vehicle targeted by the shooters, according to police. Investigators are searching for a blue Honda Civic seen fleeing the scene westbound.
Hunt Club Road was closed from Paul Benoit to Paul Anka Drive, about a 1.3-kilometre stretch, but it has since reopened.
