Two Jewish brothers were shot in Côte-St-Luc, Montreal at around 10 pm Saturday night after the close of the Sabbath by a suspect who opened fire as soon as the door opened to their single-family residence.
One of the men, age 29, was shot multiple times in both his upper and lower body. He is now fighting for his life at a city hospital, according to a report published in the Montreal Gazette.
The second man, who answered the door with him, is reported to be his brother; he is age 31 and was shot in the lower body. He too was seriously injured but his life is not threatened, according to the report.
It’s not clear whether the two brothers knew the suspect or not, nor is it clear who the target actually was, according to a report published by CBC.
The suspect fled on foot and Montreal Police spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant told reporters that he was still at large as of Sunday morning.
The Police K-9 (dog) unit has been deployed, along with SPVM investigators and forensic specialists who were sent to the scene to collect evidence and begin analysis.
The public is requested to pray for the complete recovery of Yisroel Eliyahu and Andrew Mordechai ben David (The Yeshiva World reports the mother’s name is not available.)
