The Sûreté du Québec homicide squad is working with Terrebonne police after 53-year-old Gaétan Sévigny was killed Thursday morning.

Local police received several calls around 10:15 a.m. when he was shot at his residence on du Général Street.

SQ spokesperson Marie-Michelle Moore says the Terrebonne man was hit with at least one bullet.

He was taken to hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Moore says the SQ has reason to believe Sévigny’s death is linked to organized crime.

However, she said it has no ties to Wednesday’s four arrests linked to the 2016 slayings of brothers Vincenzo Falduto and Giuseppe Falduto, as well as the deaths of Lorenzo Giordano and Rocco Sollecito.
