A restaurant in Montreal’s Griffintown district was the target of a shooting in the early morning hours of Saturday, police say.
Residents in the area told police they woke up to the sounds of gunshots fired at Italian eatery Pizzeria Moretti on Wellington Street just after 4 a.m., authorities say.
SPVM spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils told Global News several 911 calls were made and witnesses told officers that at least one suspect fled the scene on foot after the shots were fired at the business.
No one was injured but Chèvrefils says one person, presumably staff, was inside the establishment at the time of the shooting. The restaurant lists 11 p.m. as its closing hour on Friday evenings.
Officials say at least one of the restaurant’s windows was smashed and several bullet casings were located at the scene by police.
A security perimeter was set up on Wellington Street between Henri-Bourassa Boulevard and Peel Street for forensic investigators.
No suspects have been arrested.
