A call to 911 was made around 6:30 p.m. after gunshots were heard on rue de Salaberry, not far from rue James-Morrice.

According to information obtained by the police from witnesses, this would be a conflict which degenerated between the victim and individuals outside a vehicle parked in the Galeries Normandie space.

It was while exiting the vehicle that the man was hit with at least one projectile in the lower body. He took refuge in a business and was located by the police when they arrived on the scene.

The victim is a 32-year-old man known to police circles. He was conscious during his transport to the hospital center and there is no fear for his life.

The suspects left the scene on foot, in a direction which is so far unknown.

A security perimeter has been erected and investigators are on site to analyze the scene.

Another conflict escalates

Another event forced the SPVM to demarcate a security perimeter in Ahuntsic-Cartierville, a few hours earlier.

A conflict escalated between two men on rue Saint-Évariste. The two individuals, who could be ex-spouses, had an argument and one of them was injured by a stabbing weapon.

We wouldn’t fear for his life.

A scene was first erected since a suspect may have locked himself in an apartment. This information was ultimately unfounded.

The file was transferred to SPVM investigators.
