The window of a restaurant in Dorval, in Montreal's West Island, was shattered by what appears to have been a bullet early Friday morning.

Montreal police (SPVM) have still not yet located a shell casing.

The event occurred at 5 a.m. at a restaurant on Place Transcanadienne, near the intersection of des Sources Boulevard in a commercial and industrial sector of Dorval.

SPVM police officers responded after receiving a 911 call. They say no one was around when they arrived, and the restaurant was closed.

The window was damaged, but there were no reported injuries.

A security perimeter has been set up, and investigators and forensic technicians are at the scene.

Police are also looking at surveillance cameras in the neighbourhood to see if they can identify a suspect.

No arrests have been made.
