WATCH ABOVE: Laval police are investigating after a man in his 30 was shot in the parking lot of an apartment building.


The shooting death of a man in Laval, north of the island of Montreal, has been transferred to Quebec provincial police.

“This case could have a link with organized crime,” Sûreté du Québec (SQ) Sgt. Claude Denis told Global News.

He could not elaborate on what that could mean.

“The investigation is not finished, it’s a young investigation,” he said, adding that they did not know if the victim had been identified.
