Detectives said the 20-year-old was in Queen’s Park in Glasgow on Saturday when a man leapt from the bushes and shot him in the arm and the leg.
The man had to be treated in hospital after the attack, which is thought to have been racially motivated.
Detective Constable Barry Hughes, of Strathclyde Police, said: “This would appear to be a totally unprovoked attack on a young man who was enjoying a walk in the park with his dog.
“It is believed that the suspect shouted some verbal abuse at the injured man prior to discharging the weapon and as such police are treating this incident as racially motivated.”
The shooting suspect was described as an Asian man in his 20s.
