The police received several calls about gunshots heard on Wednesday evening, on Boulevard Clermont, before the authorities discovered an inanimate man on the pavement.
It was approximately 21:30 p.m. when that new case of armed violence broke out near the 1ère Rue, in that sector of Laval-des-Rapides, located a little east of Highway 15.
On the spot, officers from the Service the police de Laval (SPL) found a man lying on the ground, he who was shot.
His death was pronounced at the scene. His age and identity are still unknown, as a security perimeter has been erected pending the investigation of crimes against the person and forensic identification specialists from the SPL.
It’s the fifth murder to occur in Laval in 2022. An attempted murder also occurred on Wednesday, July 20, near Sainte-Dorothée.
