The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) say they have reason to believe a fatal shooting in Brossard on Montreal’s South Shore last week is linked to organized crime.

Police said on Friday that new elements have come to light in the investigation.

A 25-year-old man was shot around 10:30 p.m. last Friday inside a restaurant at Quartier Dix30, a busy shopping district in Brossard. He was transported to hospital, where he died from his injuries.
