One man was wounded late Thursday in a drive-by shooting in Vancouver's Rose Village neighborhood.

At 11:01 p.m. Thursday, Vancouver police responded to a report of a shooting in the 3300 block of V Street.

An initial investigation by officers found that multiple rounds were fired from a vehicle and that a man had suffered two gunshot wounds, according to a police bulletin.

The injuries were not life-threatening, and he was taken to a local hospital. His name was not released.

Officers were told that the vehicle involved in the shooting was a brown older-model four-door Cadillac, and that it was last seen southbound on V Street.

The shooting is under investigation by the Safe Streets Task Force, a multi-agency gang unit, assisted by the Vancouver Police Major Crimes Unit.

The area of 33rd Street and V Street was shut down during the investigation.

In a note to The Columbian, one neighbor wrote that one of the houses on the street appears to be a site for illicit drug sales.
