A 29-year-old woman who was shot in the leg Monday night while she was in her Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., apartment might be the victim of mistaken identity, Montreal police say.

Const. Jean-Pierre Brabant said officers received reports of gunshots on Rue de Versailles at around 10:35 p.m. ET.

Police found a woman inside an apartment with a gunshot wound to her leg. 

She was taken to hospital with injuries that are not life threatening.

Numerous bullet holes were visible in the glass of a sliding door at the back of the woman's apartment and police have confirmed that the shots were fired from outside.

Brabant said police are looking into the possibility that the victim was mistaken for somebody else. 

"We're still trying to know exactly what happened. That's why the victim's going to be met to know if there's anything or any threat that was [made] to her in the past," Brabant said. 

Police investigators have no suspects and hope to speak with the injured woman on Tuesday morning.
