An 18-Year-Old Was Shot In A Drive-By Shooting In Montreal Last Night

An 18-year-old man was left with "superficial wounds" after a drive-by shooting in Montreal on April 24.

SPVM spokesperson Julien Lévesque told MTL Blog a 911 call was received around 7:15 p.m. on Saturday evening concerning shots fired at the intersection of rue Lemieux and avenue Dornal.

The SPVM said the victim was "conscious" when police arrived at the intersection in Côte-des-Neiges and "had superficial wounds on his lower body" as a result of the use of a firearm.

The victim wasn't transported to the hospital afterwards—the SPVM said they are not cooperating with police.

The suspect(s) remain unknown at the moment, as police say they fled the scene before police arrived.
