The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "A man with a history of close ties to the Montreal Mafia was gunned down Tuesday morning in the parking lot of a business in Laval. Police sources identified the victim as Vincenzo Armeni, a 66-year-old drug smuggler who was still serving a sentence he received in 2007." The guns used were not registered nor legally obtained.
"Armeni was killed outside a strip mall that includes Céramique 440, a business referenced a few times in an affidavit that was prepared to obtain a search warrant in Project Magot-Mastiff — an investigation into how the Montreal Mafia and the Hells Angels worked together to control drug trafficking in Montreal." Big surprise. Note the common denominator.
