Two men are dead after two shooting incidents Tuesday. One took place in the parking lot of the Rockland Centre shopping mall in the Town of Mount Royal. The other occurred inside a restaurant on rue Saint-Denis in downtown Montreal.

The first incident, at the Rockland Centre, occurred at around 12:55 p.m. and involved a 44-year-old victim.

Investigators were on the scene Tuesday afternoon to meet with witnesses and examine surveillance footage to try to get a description of a suspect, according to Brabant.

The second incident occurred at around 1:30 p.m. Preliminary information gathered by police suggests a suspect approached the victim, a 50-year-old man, inside a restaurant and fired at least one shot before taking off in an "unknown direction," Brabant continued.

Police closed rue Saint-Denis between boulevard de Maisonneuve and rue Ontario to carry out an investigation.

Brabant said Tuesday it wasn't unclear if the two events were linked.

Mayor Valérie Plante responded to the violence on social media, assuring residents that "all necessary resources are in place to shed light on these crimes."
