TORONTO – A 24-year-old man who was shot by police officers in Oshawa during a reckless getaway effort in a hearse now faces a slew of charges.
And it turns out he's no stranger to the justice system.
Durham Regional Police say nearly two dozen charges have been laid against Shawn Jonathon Alves, including several counts of attempted murder for allegedly trying to run down officers as he burst out of a funeral home's garage in a stolen hearse on Boxing Day.
The same man was imprisoned for murdering a 15-year-old Oshawa boy six years ago.
