It has taken a Montreal jury nine days to find three men guilty of shooting two people to death at the Flawnego clothing store on St. Jacques St. in Old Montreal four years ago.
Kyle Gabriel, Terrell Lloyd Smith and Carey Isaac Regis were each found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder and another two of attempted murder after a trial that began last September.
All three received automatic life sentences.
Two men — Jean Gaston and Peter Christopoulos — died in a hail of gunfire in the shooting on the afternoon of March 18, 2010. Two other men, Frédéric Louis and Alain Gagnon, were also hurt.
Montreal police say the killers fired off at least 60 shots inside the store. They believe their intended target was the store's owner — street gang leader Ducarme Joseph. He was not hurt.
Joseph was subpoenaed to testify at the trial, but never showed up.
