The Surete du Quebec is seeking the public's assistance in gathering information on the May 26, 2016 killing in Laval of Rocco Sollecito, a reputed Mafia boss.
A mobile command post has been installed today in Laval.
Anyone with information regarding this event can stop by 3535 Jean-Noel-Lavoie-Ouest (440) in Laval.
He was leaving his home and apparently heading to Marche 440 when a gunman emerged from hiding and fired several bullets into Sollecito's car from nearby. Sollecito was struck in the upper body and died at the scene.
The police are looking for two individuals who were seen after the fact as they fled on a black motorcycle.
Anyone with information on this event is asked to contact the Sûreté du Québec Criminal Information Center at 1-800-659-4264.
