Police were called to Old Montreal Friday Morning to investigate a report of four people who were kidnapped.

A 911 call was made at around 4 a.m. about a conflict in an apartment building on de la Commune Street near St-Hubert Street.

When officers arrived, they received information that led them to believe that there was a quadruple kidnapping. A source told CTV News that a torched vehicle that was found hours later in Laval is possibly connected to the kidnapping. 

Investigators from the major crime unit are leading the investigation.

Police did not release any further details as the investigation is ongoing.
