A 34-year-old Penticton man is in custody after a man was allegedly shot early Monday morning.

On Jan. 9 at 1:20 a.m. Penticton RCMP received a report of a shooting at a residence in the 600 block of Martin Street. An investigation revealed two males allegedly entered the apartment where they confronted a male who was visiting the location.
