The Montreal Gazette is reporting that "The Montreal police are investigating what appears to have been a gangland settling of accounts carried out Tuesday evening in the parking lot of a busy West Island shopping mall. The victim, Stevens Cantave, 42, was a member of a Montreal street gang who had a criminal record. A police source confirmed reports identifying Cantave as the victim of the shooting outside a part of Galeries des Sources where many restaurants and a gym are located. Police responded to several 911 calls about the shooting on Sources Blvd., near Brunswick Blvd., just before 6 p.m. Cantave was declared dead at the scene."
"According to La Presse, Cantave had close ties to Marckens Vilme, a member of the Ruffriders, a street gang based in the West Island.
In 2022, Vilme was one of three men convicted in Ontario of murdering a Hells Angel based in Ontario, Michael Deabaitua-Schulde, on March 11, 2019. The victim was shot after he left a gym at a busy plaza in Mississauga. Vilme was identified as one of the two shooters who killed the Hells Angel." Ontario vs Montreal chapters.
La Presse is reporting that "According to our information, Stevens Cantave would also have been, at least at a certain time, close to Atna Onha, another member of a blue street gang (the Ruffriders) who has often been talked about in the criminal world for several months."
CBC is reporting that "Atna Onha now claims the status of Godfather of Street Gangs that Greg Woolley had before he was shot and killed."
La Presse reported that Atna Onha met with Frantz Louis in a Laval park 6 months before he was killed along with Gilles Lambert and François Vachon, both members of the Hells Angels’ Montreal chapter, as well as Joseph Chamai a man linked to Lebanese organized crime.
