Montreal Gazette February 15, 2011
A preliminary inquiry began Tuesday at the Montreal courthouse in a murder case where two men are charged with killing two people in a brazen shooting at a clothing store in Old Montreal on March 18.
Quebec Court Judge Helene Morin placed a publication ban on all evidence presented during the inquiry in the case against Terrell Lloyd Smith, 28, and Carey Isaac Regis, 42. They face five charges each, including the murders of Peter Christopoulos and Jean Gaston, the uncle of reputed street gang leader Ducarme Joseph, 42, believed by police to be the intended target in the shooting. The two accused also face attempted murder charges and a conspiracy charge. Louis Frederic, 30, and Alain Gagnon, an electrician who was working in the Flawnego boutique, were wounded in the shooting.
A third man charged in the same case, Kyle Gabriel, 26, a resident of Little Burgundy, is still being sought by police.
The preliminary inquiry is scheduled to continue for four more days.
