Three people were injured in a shooting in the middle of the night on Tuesday inside a strip bar in Longueuil, said Longueuil police.

The incident took place after midnight at Bar Vegas, on Marie-Victorin Boulevard close to Highway 25 in Longueuil.

After the shooting, one man was taken to a hospital in Longueuil, one to a hospital in Montreal and the other to a hospital in Laval.

Police do not fear for their lives.

The three men, aged between 18 and 30, are not collaborating with police although the bar staff and witnesses are. There were about 40 people in the bar at the time.
