42-year-old Laval man was fatally shot outside his apartment building early Saturday. Laval police are investigating whether the homicide is linked to a fatal shooting early Friday evening in a busy parking lot outside Galeries d’Anjou. A 37-year-old man was killed and another man was wounded in that attack. “We cannot confirm as of now but it is a possibility,” said Laval police constable Nathalie Lorrain, adding the force is in touch with its Montreal counterparts. In both shootings, police say the victims were known to police. A call came into 911 at about 2:20 a.m. reporting the sound of gunshots and a man lying on the ground in front of a building on Samson Blvd. in Laval, Lorrain said. The man was shot in the parking lot as he arrived home and managed to walk to the front of the building before collapsing. There were no eye-witnesses although a few people heard several gun shots, she said. The man was unconscious but still breathing when police arrived at the scene. He was pronounced dead in hospital, Lorrain said. Police allege the victim was a street-gang member.
