Montreal Jewish school targeted in shooting for 2nd time in less than a week, police say

A Jewish school in Montreal was shot at Sunday, the second time in under a week the school has been targeted with gunfire, according to police.

The facade of the school in Montreal’s Côte-des-Neiges neighborhood sustained damage but was empty at the time of Sunday’s shooting, and no one was injured, Caroline Chevrefils, a spokesperson for the Montreal Police Department, told ABC News.

The shooting occurred about 5 a.m. local time Sunday, and police received multiple 911 calls of gunfire in the area, Chevrefils said, noting a witness told police they saw a car speeding from the scene after the gunfire.

Police did not release the name of the school, but Chevrefils confirmed to ABC News that it is the same Jewish school that was shot at on Thursday.

CTV News in Canada identified the school as the Jewish School Yeshiva Gedola.
