Attempted murder in Lachine

The Montreal police department is investigating an attempted murder after two people were shot in Lachine overnight.

Spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said reports of gunshots in the area around Notre-Dame and 7th Ave. came in shortly after midnight. 

When officers arrived at the scene they found two victims, a 22-year-old woman had been hit in her upper body and a man in his 30s with wounds to his lower body.

Both were rushed to hospital and at about 3:00 A.M. Brabant confirmed their conditions had improved and both were expected to recover.

Investigators closed a section of Notre-Dame overnight while meeting with potential witnesses and searching for ways of putting together the pieces to the puzzle.

No arrests have been made.
