A 28-year-old man has died after a car full of people was shot at in Chomedey, Laval overnight on Sunday, police say.

Five people were aboard a moving vehicle on Curé-Labelle Boulevard close to Louis-Payette Avenue when the shooting happened, the Service de police de Laval (SPL) said.

The car was found riddled with bullet holes soon after calls came in about the shooting at around 1 a.m.

The 28-year-old man died before he could be rushed to hospital, Const. Stéphanie Beshara said. A 14-year-old was also struck in the shooting and was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

Two others were also sent to hospital with minor injuries after the car's windows were shattered. The fifth person in the car was unharmed, police added.

"Now we are here with a perimeter and a command post to try to understand the cause of this event that happened," Beshara said.

No arrests have been made. Police are reviewing surveillance footage in the area.
