A man was injured in a shooting in Hunters Point on Saturday, police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The 19-year-old victim was in a moving vehicle with a friend near Evans Avenue and Middlepoint Road about 7:30 p.m. when another vehicle drove alongside them and fired numerous gunshots, Newman said. The victim reportedly sustained wounds to his head and hand.

He was taken to the hospital and his injuries are said to be not life threatening. Officers in the area heard the shots and responded to the scene, Newman said. The victim was reportedly conscious and able to talk to the officers.

There was no suspect information or motive known Monday morning. Police canvassed the area for surveillance cameras but as of Monday morning had obtained no video.
