On arrival, police found a South Asian man who had been shot in the leg while he was vacuuming his Mercedes.

The gunman pulled up beside him while he was at the auto shop and fired.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he is expected to make a full recovery.

Delta police continue to look for the suspect.

More to come.
