Suspect in custody after shooting at Laval nightclub

Police in Laval are still trying to determine what led to a shooting outside a night club on Curé-Labelle Boulevard Wednesday evening.

Police spokesperson Franco Di Genova says when officers responded to calls about gunfire they found a 32 year old man in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest.

He was taken to hospital and is expected to recover.

Di Genova says eyewitnesses told investigators the shooting was proceeded by an argument inside the club.

A short time later police arrested a 30 year old man who had fled the scene on foot.

He remains in custody and is expected to appear in court Thursday.
