DOLLARD-DES-ORMEAUX | A young man has been reached by a bullet Wednesday evening following a dispute which has degenerated to Dollard-des-Ormeaux on the island of Montreal.
According to initial information available, a chicane would have burst within a group of individuals to 20 h on the street Natasha. At one point, the suspect allegedly brandished a firearm and fired towards the victim, a 20 year old man, before fleeing, said the officer Raphael Bergeron, spokesperson for the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM).
The man suffered a serious wound to the abdomen. He was transported to hospital and had to undergo surgery in the course of the evening, but he was in a stable condition and his life seemed not to be threatened, said officer Bergeron.
The police were trying Wednesday night to learn a little more about the circumstances surrounding this attempted murder, but the witnesses of the scene showed little talkative and cooperative, noted the SPVM.
No description of the suspect was available and no arrests had been made late in the evening. Investigators have begun an inquiry to try to make this story clear.
