MONTREAL -- Montreal police are calling on the public to help solve a series of shootings.
On Saturday the SPVM asked anyone with information on the shootings to come forward.
The request comes less than a week after Mayor Valerie Plante called on Ottawa to pass stricter gun control laws following a series of incidents involving gunfire.
According to police any information will be given to a newly formed squad tasked with combating criminal groups and firearms offences.
