Quebec provincial police (SQ) is investigating after shots were fired overnight at a home in Deux-Montagnes.
A source tells CTV News the home northwest of Montreal belongs to former construction magnate Tony Accurso.
No one was injured in the shooting, which police say happened around 1 a.m. Saturday.
It follows a string of attacks targeting the Accurso family in recent months.
A Laval property reportedly belonging to his daughter was the target of arson in February.
Last August, shots were fired at a home belonging to Accurso’s son in Deux-Montagnes. Two months later, a home in the same community belonging to his daughter was destroyed in a suspected arson attack.
There were no injuries.
Accurso was sentenced to four years in prison in 2018 for his role in running a graft system that favoured a closed group of construction entrepreneurs.
He appealed the conviction and was freed on bail in June 2022, pending a Supreme Court decision.
