MONTREAL — A young man 21 years old has survived after being shot several projectiles from a firearm in an attempted murder that occurred Thursday night in Montreal-North.
According to the police Department of the City of Montreal, a call was received at 911, at 21: 50, to gunshots heard on the streets of Villeneuve, near the intersection of the boulevard Langelier, in the borough of Montréal-Nord.
On-site, the patrol officers discovered the victim injured at the top and bottom of the body. The young man was transported to hospital in a critical condition. The police said they were informed early this morning that it was now out of danger.
A security perimeter was erected on the rue Villeneuve, in order to protect the crime scene.
The victim is known to the authorities, but refuses to cooperate. It would be related to street gangs, learned The canadian Press. It could be a settlement of accounts.
Always according to our sources, friends and acquaintances were on the scene. The police have tried to question “witnesses”, but “for the moment, few people cooperate in the investigation”, reported the spokesperson for the SPVM Jean-Pierre Brabant.
No suspect has been arrested for the moment in this case.
A search had to be carried out in a building unit, said the POLICE.
