J'ai pensé que ca serait une bonne idée d'avoir un fil qui a comme sujet le crime à Montréal.


Violent night leaves 2 dead, 4 injured

Three shot and two stabbed for a cigarette

MONTREAL - Police have no suspects after a violent Sunday night in Montreal and Laval in which two men were killed in separate shootings, another was injured by gunfire and two men were stabbed for a cigarette.


At 7 p.m, at the corner of Allée des Pruches and Duquesne St. in the east-end Mercier/Hochelaga/Maisonneuve borough, a group of about 15 youths were gathered outside of an apartment building when someone approached and fired a gun, striking a 20-year-old man in the head.


He died later in a hospital, and his death is the 12th homicide of 2009, Montreal police Constable Daniel Lacoursière said. Police have no suspects in that case, he said.


About 1:15 a.m., police were called to Dominion and Quesnel Sts. in Little Burgundy after gunshots were heard fired in the street, Lacoursière said.


When police arrived they found two men, ages 25 and 22, lying on the street gravely wounded. They were rushed to a hospital but the 25-year-old died of his injuries.


His death became the 13th homicide of the year. Police have no suspects in the case.


Also last night, at about 10:30 a man, 41, walked up to a man, 36, near the Papineau métro station and asked for a cigarette. The younger man replied that he didn’t smoke and he was then stabbed in the upper body, suffering minor injuries, Lacoursière said.


A few blocks away, on Ste. Catherine and Dorion Sts., the same assailant asked another person, a 67-year-old man, for a cigarette. He gave him one but was also stabbed in the upper body, Lacoursière said. Police managed to arrest the attacker nearby and he was being questioned by police, Lacoursière said.


Both victims were in stable condition Monday morning.


Finally, a 43-year-old man was shot in the left calf after an altercation with two men in the parking lot of an IGA grocery store at about 9 p.m. on de la Concorde Blvd. in the Duvernay section of Laval. Police heard about the incident when the victim showed up at Montreal police station 30 on Pie IX Blvd. in north-end Montreal after the attack.


The victim was in stable condition and was cooperating with police somewhat, although details on his attackers were sketchy, Laval police Constable Frank Di Genova said.

Asking for a cigarette and then stabbing them whether they give it to you or not? What's the problem with this guy? Does he have any mental issues or what?


It's pretty obvious this guy has mental issues. Most people living on the streets have mental issues......as a society, we have decided it's where they belong.
