Man injured in apparent road-rage shooting on Montreal’s Highway 40, police say

Montreal police say a man was shot and injured in an apparent case of road rage in the city’s northeast on Monday.

After a conflict erupted between two motorists — on Highway 40’s service road in the borough of St. Leonard — one drove parallel to the other’s moving vehicle and opened fire, according to Montreal police spokesperson Const. Caroline Chèvrefils.

The shooting occurred at about 1:40 p.m. ET, just before the eastbound exit for Langelier Boulevard.

Police say the victim, who was driving a delivery van, had at least one upper-body injury and was conscious when transported to Sacré-Coeur Hospital.

His injuries are not life threatening, Chèvrefils said.

There is no description of a suspect at this time, but police will review traffic cameras and security cameras of nearby businesses as they investigate, Radio-Canada reports.

A section of Highway 40’s service road remains closed between Lacordaire Boulevard and the Langelier exit. Eastbound traffic has been reduced to a crawl on Highway 40 eastbound, though it remains open in both directions.
