On Thursday, April 12, just after midnight, Montreal police (SPVM) rushed to Lasalle in response to reports of an attempted murder.

The calls came at approximately 12:10 am as gunshots were reported at the intersection of St. Patrick and Clement, according to CTV Montreal.

Gunfire was shot towards a car as the car fled the scene and went directly to the hospital. The victim found there was a 38-year-old man, who was not injured but refused to cooperate with SPVM. He was later arrested for possession of drugs and narcotics.

Investigators and K-9 units searched the scene, finding bullet shells and gunfire impact markings in the process.

The area reopened to traffic several hours later. Police believe that the incident is drug-related.
