    Of the inhabitants of the building located near avenue Decelles, where occurred the second attempt to murder were in shock Sunday.

    The Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) began its work of investigation to determine the reasons for the aggression.

    “The state of health of the victim does not always meet with investigators,” said Jean-Pierre Brabant, spokesperson for the SPVM.
