TORONTO - A day after a man was shot while allegedly trying to evade cops in a stolen hearse, it was business as usual at an Oshawa funeral home.

But the daring Boxing Day getaway attempt, like a scene from a Hollywood action movie, is something the owner of the McIntosh-Anderson-Kellam Funeral Home won't soon forget.

"It was certainly alarming," John Kellam said Thursday.

"He was looking for a hiding spot," Kellam said of the man, whose name has not been released.
