Man, 36, gunned down on Montreal street two days before sentencing: reports
Montreal police say a man is dead after he was shot in broad daylight in the Saint-Michel neighbourhood Wednesday afternoon.
Sources confirmed to CTV News the victim is 36-year-old Sébastien Giroux.
Giroux was scheduled to be sentenced on Friday after pleading guilty in March to being an accessory after the fact in a May 2017 murder in N.D.G., according to media reports.
On Wednesday, police received a 911 call at 4:25 p.m. for a report of a gunshot and responded to the intersection of Shelley Avenue and Crémazie Boulevard East. When officers arrived on scene they found the victim's body on the street with a gunshot wound to the head.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. No arrests have been made in the shooting.
The killing marks the city's ninth homicide of the year.
