A woman in her 30s remains in critical but non life-threatening condition following a New Year's Day shooting in the Montreal area.

Several 911 calls were made at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday about gunshots near the corner of Lucerne and Côté-de-Liesse roads in the Town of Mount Royal, according to Montreal police spokesperson Mariane Allaire Morin.
