Halifax police are searching for two men in connection with a home invasion, shooting and abduction in Bedford late Wednesday night.

Police say they received a call at 11:30 p.m. AT that a man had been shot in an apartment in the 1-100 block of Glen Moir Terrace. 

When officers arrived, the victim wasn't there, but someone told them he had been abducted by two men in the victim's own vehicle.

Halifax Regional Police spokesperson Const. John MacLeod said officers later located the victim, a 42-year-old man, not far away. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the men who shot and abducted the victim were wearing dark clothing and masks. 

The victim's vehicle, a 2014 Dodge Caravan cargo van, was later found. 

Police say they do not believe the incident is a random act.
