Montreal police say road rage suspected in shooting beside highway
Canada
MONTREAL—The driver of a delivery van was shot on the service road of a busy Montreal highway today in what police describe as an apparent case of road rage.

Montreal police say they received a call at about 1:40 p.m. concerning a dispute that had degenerated between two motorists.

Police spokesperson Caroline Chevrefils says the two men involved were in vehicles heading east on the service road of Highway 40 in east-end Montreal.

She says one driver pulled alongside the victim’s van and opened fire before quickly fleeing the scene.

The victim, injured in the upper body, was conscious when first-responders arrived, and police say his life is not in danger.

His employer, Monsieur Livre-Tout of St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., said late in the afternoon it did not have any news on the driver, described as being in his 20s.
