A man is in critical condition in hospital after allegedly being injured by Montreal police this morning. Provincial police say Montreal officers responding to a psychological distress call at an apartment block at about 8 a.m. were involved.

They are not confirming multiple media reports the man was shot.

The incident occurred about three blocks south of the Olympic Stadium in the city’s Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough.

Provincial police have taken over the case. In Quebec, it is customary for another force to investigate when there is injury or death during a police operation.
