The Sûreté du Québec will set up a mobile command post at the Quartier DIX30 on Thursday, hoping to gather information from the public.
The Sûreté du Québec will be in Brossard Thursday seeking the public’s help in trying to solve a brazen shooting it believes is linked to organized crime.
The provincial police force will set up a mobile command post at the Quartier DIX30 starting at 9 a.m. and is asking anyone with information about the shooting to come forward.
On May 10, a man walked into a pizza restaurant at the shopping complex and opened fire, hitting 24-year-old Éric Francis De Souza at least once. De Souza later died in hospital.
Police recovered a firearm believed to have been used in the shooting on a nearby restaurant terrace. Investigators also think a burnt-out car found in a nearby field was linked to the crime.
The investigation was transferred to the Sûreté du Québec since investigators believe the shooting is tied to organized crime.
It was the second time in a week that an individual was fatally wounded in a public setting.
The previous Saturday night in Laval, Salvatore Scoppa, 49, who has been linked to the Montreal Mafia, was shot dead in a hotel next to Highway 15. No one has been arrested in connection with Scoppa’s death.
