Teen killed and one person injured in overnight Laval shooting
MONTREAL -- A teen was killed and another person was injured during a shooting in Laval’s Vimont neighbourhood early Thursday morning.
A few hours after the shooting, Laval police still weren’t reporting any arrests in connection with the event.
Several people told the officers they heard multiple gun shots around 12:15 a.m. in the Parc-Ecole des Explorateurs, situated at the Bedard St. and Saint-Elzear E. Blvd. intersection.
Upon their arrival, police found the young victim on the ground and another injured person nearby, who was taken to hospital. His condition was still unknown to officers early Thursday morning.
Laval police were able to confirm that neither of the victims are known to police for past criminal activity.
A large perimeter was erected in the residential area where the shooting took place. Investigators and the force’s K9 unit were on scene in the middle of the night and technicians will comb the area over the course of the day on Thursday.
