Two people are dead after shootings in Montreal's Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville boroughs Tuesday night. They represent Montreal Island's 16th and 17th homicides of 2022.

Police found the first victim after responding to a 911 call about possible gunfire on boulevard Jules-Poitras near the intersection with boulevard Deguire, near autoroute 15 in Saint-Laurent, at around 9:45 p.m., a Montreal police spokesperson told the media Wednesday morning.
