Woman shot during robbery; police seek suspect
MONTREAL — A search is underway for a man in a brazen daytime armed robbery in Montreal where a woman was shot before the suspect fled into the city’s mass transit system.
Police say the incident took place at a convenience store inside a strip mall next to the Frontenac subway station, east of the downtown area.
Spokesman Benoit Boiselle says the 41-year-old victim was struck at least once in the upper body and is listed in stable condition in hospital, but in a state of shock. Police officers are now scouring the subway for the suspect, who fled on foot before darting into the nearby station.
Boiselle says police have been helped by citizens who snapped photos of him.
