A 25-year-old man was arrested Saturday morning after gunshots were fired overnight in Côte Saint-Luc.

The shots were fired at around 1:30 a.m. at the corner of Kildare Road and Eldridge Avenue.

“We got a lot of 911 calls because it’s a residential area and it woke up a lot of people,” said Montreal police spokesperson Manuel Couture.

“They said they heard shots fired on the street and saw a car fleeing the scene.”
