The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) are seeking information from the public in connection with the 2016 fatal shooting of an alleged high-ranking member of the Montreal Mafia.

Quebec provincial police have set up a command post north of Montreal as they search for tips related to the death of Rocco Sollecito.

Sollecito was killed while driving, in a brazen daylight shooting in Laval on May 26, 2016. Laval police were called about gunshots on St-Elzéar Boulevard and his death was confirmed at the scene.

At the time, the SQ took over the investigation because Sollecito’s death was related to organized crime. He was a reputed senior member of the Rizzuto clan.

After more than three years since his death, investigators are now trying to identify two individuals who were seen fleeing on a black motorcycle.
