There Was A High Speed Chase And Police Shootout In Montreal This Morning (Video)

Last night in Montreal's West Island, a 28-year-old man stole a car, was shot at, and tried to run over some police officers after a car chase. So, he had quite the night.

The investigation of this case even led to the closure of all three eastbound lanes on Highway 40 in Senneville around 1:00 am.

The suspect's evening began when the police escorted him to the hospital for drug-related issues. He was later released and immediately after, he stole a car. Police began to pursue the vehicle but had to abandon the chase because it was deemed "too dangerous".

Later on that night, the police found the car in the parking lot of a restaurant in Dollard-des-Ormeaux. They assumed that the car was empty, so they walked on over to it. Unfortunately, the suspect was actually sitting in the car. In an attempt to escape, he hit the gas and drove towards the officers. Luckily, no one was hit, but police open fired towards the car and the suspect drove off onto Highway 40.

The suspect started off driving westbound, but then sharply changed direction. Authorities only managed to get a hold of the man when the chase ended on eastbound Highway 40 at Anciens-Combattant Boulevard. Several police cruisers, as well as a squad car for the Sureté du Québec,crashed into him.

In order to get him into custody, they had to shoot him with a stun gun. It was only when he got out of the stolen car that they realized that earlier that night, he had been shot. After further investigation, all three eastbound lanes reopened at 9:30 this morning. 

Here's a video of the aftermath:
