(Montreal) Overnight shots rang out in Montreal from Wednesday to Thursday. Several suspects appeared at the door of an downtown apartment and opened fire without reaching residents.
At 2:15 a.m. Thursday, “several people” posted themselves in front of the patio door of an apartment in Roe Boudreau between Roe Baby and Roe Ontario. After knocking on the door, they fired several projectiles in the direction of a small group of dormitories.
The victims hid to avoid multiple bullets and no one was injured, said Agent Jean-Pierre Brabant, a spokesman for the Service de Police de la Ville de Montreal (SPVM).
There were no arrests in the file, the Montreal Police Force reported.
According to our information, the occupants of the apartment – people known to the police – were the people targeted by the shooters. They show less cooperation with the police.
Legal recognition as well as a team of dogs were evacuated.
The perimeter was lifted Thursday morning. This is the second such incident in Montreal in 24 hours.
During the day on Wednesday in the Riviere-des-Prairie, Boulevard Perras and Ely-Burgard fired into the corner without injuring anyone.
So far, six shootings have been reported in the metropolis in August.
