Man shot during alleged Hochelaga-Maisonneuve home invasion

Montreal police are investigating an alleged home invasion and attempted murder in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve.

Officers were called to an apartment in a building on Sainte-Catherine St near William-David Ave. at about 9:30 P.M.

Inside they found a 45-year-old man who had been shot in the lower body. He was taken to hospital and is expected to recover.

The victim told investigators he had no idea who his attackers were.

Not long after the shooting police stopped a car matching the description of one that witnesses saw fleeing the scene. The two men inside were arrested and are expected to meet with investigators Wednesday to determine their possible role in the attack.
