Montreal police investigate after 1 dead and 2 injured in nighttime shootings – Montreal
Montreal police are investigating after a man died and two others were injured in two separate shootings in the northeast of the city on Wednesday night.
Investigators from the Major Crimes Unit remain in a schoolyard in Montreal North after authorities were called around 10:20 p.m. about gunshots in the area.
Police found a 26-year-old man with gunshot wounds. He was taken to hospital, where he was confirmed dead on Thursday morning.
A second man showed up at the hospital minutes later with similar but non-life-threatening injuries, according to police spokesman Manuel Couture.
Witnesses said police said a suspect approached a group of four people who were chatting on the school grounds when gunfire rang out.

No arrests have been made in what is Montreal’s 19th homicide of the year.
Around the same time, police were responding to a call about a shooting in the Rivière-des-Prairies neighborhood.
A 20-year-old woman was injured after a gunshot hit her car window, Couture said. The shots were reportedly fired from a moving vehicle whose driver fled before police arrived.
Investigators should meet with the victim and witnesses.
No arrests have been made in this case either.
