Police called to daytime shooting in Little Italy

Ottawa Police are investigating a daytime shooting in Little Italy.

Officers were called to Willow and Rochester at about 1:55 this afternoon.

They say a man was shot in the leg.

His injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

No suspect was taken into custody at the scene, though sources tell CFRA a police operation at Jasmine and Arrowsmith which began later in the afternoon is connected to the investigation.

That operation ended in an arrest, but so far no charges have been laid.

It's the second shooting this week, and the second so far this year.

A man was injured near the Canterbury Recreation Centre on Tuesday evening.
