Montreal police are looking for suspected arsonists linked to nine attacks across the city.

According to the SPVM report, "the suspects proceed each time with the same modus operandi, that is to say, they use an incendiary object such as a Molotov cocktail or even spill an accelerant to ignite."

In three of the attacks, the police reported that firearms were "discharged at buildings."

The SPVM suspects that "a criminal group that is allegedly active in various fields of activity" is responsible.

Anyone with information on the attacks or who can identify the suspects is asked to call Info-Crime at 514-393-1133.
