Shooting in Montreal North, one hospitalized

By The Canadian Press

A 35-year-old man was rushed to hospital after being shot in the upper body early Tuesday morning in Montreal North.

Police were called at around 4 a.m. to Rolland boulevard, near Pierre Street – but it was initially for a stabbing.

When officers arrived, they found the man lying on the ground with wounds similar to those from a firearm.

Authorities confirm that the victim’s life is no longer in danger.

“According to initial information obtained from witnesses, for a reason which is still unknown at the moment, a suspect allegedly fired in the direction of the victim and fled on foot before the arrival of the police,” said Véronique Dubuc, a spokesperson for Montreal police (SPVM).

A shell casing was located on the scene.

No arrest has been made so far and the investigation is ongoing.
