Police find last suspect in early morning St-Michel shooting

Published on: Last Updated: 

Pie IX Blvd. has reopened to traffic following an overnight investigation into an exchange of gunfire between police and five suspect shortly after 1 a.m. in Montreal’s St-Michel borough.

Police had been looking for a man after being called to an area of Montreal’s St-Michel borough after shots were heard near Pie IX Blvd and 47th avenue shortly after 1 a.m.

According to SPVM spokesman Simon Delorme, police found a vehicle occupied by five men when they arrived on the scene, but the men fled by foot.

While chasing the suspects, a shot was fired towards the officers and police responded with more shots, Delorme said.

Four of the suspects were arrested shortly after the exchange, but one remained on the run until shortly before 8 a.m.

No one was injured during this operation.

Authorities were able to catch the last suspect with the help of the Sûreté du Québec’s helicopters and the members of the tactical team.

Police nabbed him in the industrial sector of St-Michel after combing through a security perimeter between Pie IX Blvd., Des Grandes Prairies Blvd., the Miron quarry and Robert Blvd.

Delorme said there is reason to believe the men, who are all between 25 and 29 years old, are involved in street gangs.

The investigation continues in the industrial park as authorities look for evidence in the case.

OTTAWA: Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, killer of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, was not on RCMP watchlist

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau wasn’t on RCMP terror watchlist 

QMI AGENCY

FIRST POSTED: | UPDATED: 

OTTAWA - The man who shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial in Ottawa before being gunned down in Parliament’s Centre Block was not one of the 90 radicalized Canadians on an RCMP watchlist, Mounties revealed Thursday.

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, “was an individual who may have had extremist beliefs.”

His e-mail was found on a hard drive belonging to someone who’s been arrested for terror-related activities.


 

Born in Montreal, he later lived in Calgary and Vancouver, then went to Ottawa on Oct. 2 to deal with an issue regarding his passport application, Paulson said. Police believe he was hoping to travel to Syria from Ottawa.

At least 30 shots are fired inside the main building of Canada’s Parliament Hill, after a gunman shot and killed a soldier at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa.

 By:  Ottawa Bureau reporter,  Ottawa Bureau reporter, Published on Wed Oct 22 2014

OTTAWA — The Canadian soldier who was shot and killed as he stood guard on a bright and chilly morning at the National War Memorial is identified as Cpl. Nathan Frank Cirillo, family and military sources say.

A Parliament Hill security guard was wounded in the chaotic attack Wednesday just before 10 a.m. in the nation’s capital that police believe involved more than one assailant.

Cirillo, of Hamilton, was one of two Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada reservists standing guard in front of the monument when a gunman opened fire Wednesday morning. The shooter was killed inside the Parliament buildings after firing at least 20 shots.

Ottawa police would not confirm a CBS News report that has identified the dead shooter as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. A high-ranking federal officer confirmed his identity to The Canadian Press. He was born in 1982 and is believed to be Canadian, the American news outlet reported, quoting U.S. officials.

ETOBICOKE: Zaid Yousif killed in targeted shooting, police said

Victim’s mother says he went to watch fight, ended up being shot and killed

CBC News Posted: Oct 07, 2014 2:37 PM ET Last Updated: Oct 07, 2014 7:02 PM ET

Things were looking good for Zaid Yousif.

He had just turned 17 last Friday and been given a BMW to drive. That followed a recent trip to Europe to visit family.

Yousif was in his last year of high school and holding down a part-time job at Canadian Tire, saving up money for the future.

“Zaid was on the road to success,” his friend Munir Andreyos said in an interview with CBC News on Tuesday.

But days after his birthday, Yousif, a student at Don Bosco Catholic Secondary School, was dead. The teenager was one of two high-school students shot dead in northwest Toronto in a shocking double homicide on Monday.

Toronto police said the shooting that killed Yousif and a student from James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic High School was targeted.

But Yousif’s mother, Jina Samouie, told CBC News on Tuesday that police had told her Yousif had gone to watch a fight and attempted to flee when guns came out.

“They said in the newspaper … they killed him, like, not by accident, but this is not right,” she said.

Andreyos said that Yousif wasn’t someone who went looking for a fight.

“He wasn’t a bully, he was nothing like that,” he said.
