On Wednesday, Montreal police spokesperson Véronique Dubuc said a witness contacted emergency services after a man was heard calling out for help and saying he was being shot at.

However, on Thursday morning, police said no gunshots were actually fired. Instead, two teenage male suspects reportedly threw “projectiles” at the alleged victim, according to police.
