Police blotter: shooting, stabbing

A man was shot in an alley in Verdun late Saturday afternoon, no arrests yet.

Later, there was a fight in Villeray St-Michel involving about twenty people, in the course of which two men were badly wounded including one who got stabbed in the head.

Update: The man wounded in the head has died. The brief CP piece still calls the location Villeray, and says it’s the eighth homicide this year on the island of Montreal.
