Murder in Laval: Two series of gunshots heard in the neighborhood
The murder in Laval took place at the intersection of boulevard Clermont and 1ere rue .
A person was shot dead at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Laval-des-Rapides district, at the intersection of boulevard Clermont and 1re rue. A resident named Annie recounts hearing an initial round of five shots, a pause and two more shots before calling 911.
“During the first five shots, I was not sure, but when it started again, I thought it was really a shooting, […] and that's when I called 911, she explains. By warning my neighbor who was driving outside to come in, we heard car tires take off quite quickly so we thought that something had really happened.
A man whose identity and description have not been disclosed was found on the ground. His death was pronounced when the police arrived.
This homicide is linked to two other murders that took place the previous night in the neighborhoods of Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville.
A 26-year-old man suspected of having committed these homicides was shot dead this morning in a motel on boulevard Marcel-Laurin in Saint-Laurent, where investigators from the Sûreté du Québec are still on site to pursue their investigation.
