The man murdered last night in Saint Michel is said to be a former gang leader.
Ducarme Joseph survived a hit in 2010.
Three armed men fired multiple times some four years ago in a shop on Saint Jacques in Old Montreal, killing a body guard and a shop worker.
Police are only saying last night's victim is known to police.
The victim's body was found on the ground at the corner of Saint Michel Blvd. and Michel Ange.
He had been shot several times.
Police have yet to make an arrest.
It's the 18th murder of the year in Montreal.
