KITCHENER -- A man injured in a shooting Thursday night in Waterloo’s Vista Hills neighborhood remains in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Waterloo Regional Police says they were called to a reported break and enter on Beechdrops Drive, near Cinnamon Fern Street, at around 10:15 p.m.

That's where they found a 43-year-old man suffering from critical injuries.

He was taken to a local hospital where doctors performed emergency surgery.

He has not yet been named.

Police believe the man was shot as a result of an altercation inside the home.
