Woman shot dur­ing rob­bery; po­lice seek sus­pect

Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

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.
