“At the moment we have not been able to make any contact. It is still under investigation and we will be talking to the residents of the road.”
Police are investigating in Deux-Montagnes after shots were fired at a house and cars near the property of construction magnate Antonio (Tony) Accurso.
Jean-Philippe Labbe, spokesman for the Régie de Police du Lac Deux-Montagnes, said shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a 911 call of shots fired on 15th Street in Montreal’s northern suburbs.
“When officers arrived, they found spent shell casings on the ground and projectile marks on a house and vehicles on 15th Street. No one was hurt in the incident and for now we are on the scene investigating, looking for witnesses and trying to see if the (security) cameras recorded anything,” Labbe said.
“We are trying to understand what happened. Why would someone choose that house? Now it’s a mystery.”
The house is owned by a family with small children and the residents are unknown to the police. It is located on an L-shaped street near a luxury house owned by Accurso, who participated in a municipal price-fixing scheme on infrastructure contracts in Laval in 2018.
