OSHAWA, Ont. -- A 24-year-old Oshawa man is facing multiple charges including three counts of attempted murder in connection to an altercation with police on Boxing Day.
Police say they arrived at a business in the city east of Toronto just before 2 a.m. on Wednesday to investigate a man inside.
Shortly after, the man allegedly drove a vehicle out of the business and was shot. He was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
None of the officers were hurt and the province's Special Investigations Unit is now probing the incident.
Shawn Jonathan Alves faces a total of 23 charges including break and enter and assault with a weapon.
He has been held in custody until a bail hearing.
