Police beef up presence in north end

Police are promising a beefed-up presence in Montreal North and RDP, where there were four shootings over the weekend, although no fatalities.

La Presse’s underworld guy, Daniel Renaud, floats the idea that it’s a war between cliques on the “red” side. I find it bizarre that people here hew to the old Crips and Bloods gang colours from 1960s California, but it seems they do.
