Montreal man shot after visiting ex


Montreal police are investigating after a 43-year-old man was arrested following a shooting in the city's Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie borough.

Police say a 28-year-old man is in hospital after he paid a visit to his ex-girlfriend's apartment at about 2 a.m. Monday morning.

Neighbors heard gun shots, and police were called to the scene.

"It seems he was knocking on the door. At a certain moment, the door opened. A shot was heard. The man was injured to the leg," said Montreal police Const. Daniel Lacoursière.

Lacoursière said the victim immediately left and fled to a neighbouring building before being taken to hospital.

He said the man's life is not in danger.

Police arrested the 43-year-old suspect on the scene, and the suspect will be meeting with investigators on Monday.
