One of the two victims of a shooting that happened recently in Montreal was Andre Lemieux, the father of professional boxer David Lemieux.
Two people were shot and killed in two distinct incidents, according to the police investigation. But it’s thought that the shooter was the same guy. From the direction of the boroughs of Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville, several gunshots could be heard.
The Montreal police believe that the two separate shootings that resulted in the deaths of two people on Tuesday night and were reported within an hour of one another are related and were almost certainly committed by the same person. The locations of both shootings were the same.
