TORONTO — Po­lice have ar­rested three men in con­nec­tion with an apart­ment shoot­ing that left a preg­nant woman and her boyfriend with se­ri­ous, but not life-threat­en­ing in­juries.

Toronto po­lice say the three men were ar­rested Tues­day evening and face a to­tal of 45 charges, in­clud­ing at­tempted mur­der and nu­mer­ous gun-re­lated of­fences.

Po­lice al­lege the 19-year-old woman, who is 11 weeks preg­nant, and her 20-year-old boyfriend were shot in their bed around 1:30 a.m. Tues­day by three sus­pects wear­ing masks and dark cloth­ing, while two chil­dren slept in an­other room.

They say the woman was hit mul­ti­ple times in the chest, but her fe­tus was un­harmed.

The man was hit in the hand and thigh, and was later ar­rested in hos­pi­tal for a num­ber of out­stand­ing charges, in­clud­ing at­tempted mur­der.
