2 Montreal Police Officers Were Shot At Outside A Hospital

Director of the Montreal Police Service Sylvain Caron spoke out about two Montreal police officers being shot at while exiting the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) on August 24, saying "we cannot accept that one or more individuals would attack any member of the justice system, especially our employees."

"At the end of the day, the investigation confirmed 2 impacts and 1 projectile at the scene, which suggests that shots were indeed fired in the direction of our officers," the SPVM said in a press release.

On the same day, MTL Blog reporter Alex Melki went to the MUHC to view the scene where the gunshots were fired, which you can see a visual of above.

The SPVM said the investigation is ongoing and has been taken over by the Major Crimes Section.

Police are asking anyone with any information about the incident to call 9-1-1 or contact Info-Crime.
