At the scene they found an unconscious 40-year-old man. Police say he died a short time later from upper body gunshot wounds.

Police say the suspect(s) fled the scene before they arrived.

Later, at 4 a.m., Montreal police were called to a shooting at a bar on Saint-Hubert Street near Saint-Zotique Street in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie.

A 29-year-old male victim was found at the scene and sent to hospital in stable condition with lower body gunshot wounds. Police say shots were fired inside and outside the bar and the suspect(s) fled before authorities arrived.

Then, at 4:15 a.m., a 25-year-old man showed up at a hospital in critical condition with a gunshot wound to his upper body. Chèvrefils said the man’s condition later stabilized and there is no threat to his life.

She said there is currently no link between the two later incidents but an investigation into the circumstances around both events is underway.
