Shooting in hotel hallway

There was a shooting early this morning in a hallway at a downtown hotel.

Montreal police spokesman Raphael Bergeron says an argument erupted between two young people, over either a drug transaction or a prostitution arrangement. This was in a hotel at the corner of St. Hubert Street and de Maisonneuve Boulevard.

Investigators say a woman pulled out a handgun and opened fire on an 18-year old man. He is in stable condition in hospital.

An 18-year old suspect was arrested on the scene and will be questioned later today along with some hotel guests who witnessed the argument.
