Police investigating shots fired overnight at 2 Jewish schools in Montreal

Montreal police are investigating after shots were fired at two Jewish schools.

Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) spokesperson, Jean-Pierre Brabant, said police received two 911 calls, one at around 8:20 a.m., and the second just before 8:50 a.m.

In both cases, the callers reported the schools’ front doors had been struck by bullets, but police cannot yet confirm if there is a link between the incidents, he said.

It is not clear when the shots were fired.

One of the schools, Talmud Torah Elementary School, is located on Saint-Kevin Avenue in the city’s Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood.

At least one bullet casing was found at the scene, according to Brabant.
