Montreal police are investigating after an early morning fight between two men in an apartment building at Ontario Street and Papineau Avenue left a 37-year-old man critically injured.

Montreal police spokesman Const. Abdullah Emran says police were called to the building just after 2.a.m. Wednesday.

Emran said it appears the 37-year-old attacked another man, 30.  The victim then used what Emran called a "weapon of opportunity" to attack his assailant.

Both men were sent to hospital.
