Montreal police are investigating after a young man was found gunned down in a car just southwest of the downtown area.

Police say a 21-year-old man was found in the driver's seat of a vehicle parked near an apartment building on Saturday evening, with a passerby calling 911 about 6:30 p.m. ET.

A police spokeswoman says he had been shot in the upper body.

Const. Caroline Chèvrefils says when police arrived, first responders were already trying to save the victim, but the death was declared at the scene.

Police have no suspects in the slaying and homicide detectives have opened an investigation.

The homicide is the 11th reported in Montreal since the beginning of the year.
