Montreal police have arrested four people after a man barricaded himself inside a Cote-des-Neiges apartment building Tuesday night.

An altercation started on Lemieux Street around 9:15 p.m. and then one of the two men involved took out a gun and fired.

The victim wasn’t shot, the bullet ended up hitting a nearby parked car.

The shooter then fled the scene and barricaded himself in an apartment on Carlton Street.

The SWAT team and negotiators were called in, a perimeter was set up and nearby residents were warned not to leave their homes.

Around 2:15 a.m., the tactical squad was able to penetrate the unit and arrested four people inside.

The three men and one woman were all in their twenties.

The detainees will meet with detectives during the day Wednesday, and charges will be laid, according to police Constable Jean-Pierre Brabant.

  • Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will remain open

    A popular Cote St. Luc seniors drop-in centre will stay open, at least for now.

    The Montreal Gazette reported Saturday that the Caregiver Support Centre in the Cavendish Mall, which was supposed to close at the end of the month, had a late Friday reprieve from the health authority.

    Meanwhile the paper reports Cote St. Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather and Hampstead Mayor Bill Steinberg will meet next week to see if they can arrange alternate west-end facilities for the 40 seniors who use the centre.

    It's still not known if the decision is permanent, but certainly a relief for family members and caregivers who desperately want to keep their loved ones in their own community.
