By News Staff

It was a busy night for Montreal police (SPVM) as they dealt with a shooting and stabbing Wednesday.

Shooting in Saint-Laurent

A 41-year-old man was shot multiple times while parking his vehicle in Montreal’s Saint-Laurent borough.

The incident occurred at around 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, near the intersection of Céline-Marier and Bois-Franc Road.

The victim was conscious when police arrived at the scene — suffering from gunshot wounds, he was sent to hospital.  His life is not in danger, according to authorities.

The SPVM says that a suspect vehicle approached the victim while he was parking — this is when one or more individuals opened fire, striking him in the upper body multiple times.

The victim attempted to flee which led him to crash his vehicle into a tree in the yard of a nearby house.

No arrests have been made so far. An investigation is ongoing.

Man stabbed in Pierrefonds-Roxboro

A 26-year-old man was stabbed by a group of individuals at an apartment in Pierrefonds-Roxboro on Wednesday evening.

At around 9:20 p.m., the SPVM received a 911 call regarding the incident on Pavillon Street near Savoie Street.

The victim suffered injuries to his upper body and was transported to hospital.

“We don’t fear for his life,” said Jeanne Drouin, a SPVM spokesperson.

She adds that the suspects fled the scene before the police arrived.

No arrests have been made so far. An investigation is ongoing.
