Fatal shooting in Montreal’s Little Italy

City News is reporting that "Montreal police are investigating after a man was shot and killed in the city’s Little Italy neighbourhood early this morning." CTV is reporting that "The victim of a drive-by shooting in Montreal's Little Italy neighbourhood on Saturday was the brother of reputed gang leader Jean-Philippe Célestin, a source confirmed to CTV News. Jean Brandon Célestin was shot multiple times after leaving a restaurant on Bellechasse Street just after midnight."

"Daniel Renaud is a reporter at La Presse specializing in organized crime. Speaking to CTV News on Saturday, he said the victim's brother, Jean-Philippe Célestin, is a major player in downtown Montreal's drug trade. The Célestin brothers also served as right-hands to organized crime kingpin Gregory Woolley, who was gunned down in November, said Renaud."

Sounds like Gumby and the Ontario Village Idiots are spending some coin in Montreal.

The Montreal Gazzette reported "A restaurant owned by a man who was shot in Laval on Feb. 9 was damaged by gunfire early Wednesday morning. The man survived the shooting despite several shots being fired into his Mercedes sport utility vehicle while he was seated inside it."

"The shooting occurred in the afternoon outside a restaurant on de l’Avenir Blvd., near St-Martin Blvd. W. No one has been charged in the shooting, but on Wednesday Laval police arrested a 27-year-old man after shots were fired into the door of a different restaurant in the city’s Ste-Dorothée district. According to Quebec’s business registry, the victim of the Feb. 9 shooting is part owner of the restaurant. He is also the owner of a used car business based in Lachine."

"According to a court document obtained by the Montreal Gazette, the man was recently investigated by police as part of a probe into an extensive network of car thieves. Leaders of the network are alleged to have worked with the South Shore businessman and his company in Lachine to get stolen cars packed in containers through the Port of Montreal."


  1. no story on LLoyd Robinson murder arrest? Story sure flew outta the MSM news cycle fast, few even made the connection to Louie

    1. The son of a former East Van member fatally stabbed someone. Very sad. I don't know what the fight was about or what he was doing on Davie Street. Assaulting the cabbie was pretty low level low life. I guess stories like those distract us from the real criminals like Justin Trudeau and Zelensky.

    1. "Robinson’s father, Louie Robinson, was an original member of the East End Hells Angels but retired from the club after a major undercover investigation in which police agent Micheal Plante infiltrated the gang by getting close to him."

    2. A gangster , from the Dhak side is working on something bigger than Michael Plante

    3. I don't believe that. He was busted over 10 years ago. He has no reason to flip.

  3. Dhak side is done hells angels took them out
