Verdun Shootings

So there's been a couple of shootings in Verdun in the past week .....Usually when one happens within a week of another,it's quite likely retaliation,(but not neccessarily)
The gazette mentions a man was shot in his home by two men,who fled the scene. (well what do you expect them to do, sit down open a beer & wait for the police.......I dunn thin so Lucy)
Here's the story,from last night:
MONTREAL – Two suspects are at large after a shooting in Verdun that left a 50-year-old man in serious condition in a hospital with at least one gunshot wound to his shoulder.

The attackers knocked on the door of the victim’s home on Stephens St. near Bannantyne St. about 9:40 p.m. Wednesday, Montreal police Constable AndrĂ© Leclerc said.

They managed to enter the home and, very soon afterward, shots were fired. The two male suspects then fled the scene.

The victim fled to a neighbour’s house where he called 911, Leclerc said, adding that he did not know why the man didn't call from his home.

According to one media report, the victim’s wife, who was at home at the time, and was unharmed, but was in too much shock to give police a detailed description of the intruders.

But Leclerc could not confirm that she was in fact at home or what she might have seen.

Leclerc did not know if the victim knew his attackers. Investigators plan to speak to the victim again as soon as he can be questioned.
